A bed of feathery pink flowers had just been watered as I was going past. This is a close cropping to pick up the best drops.
Waterdrops or little party lights
This is one of the shots that I didn’t know I had until I reviewed my photos. My goal here was to get a nice close out of multiple water drops along the stem of a flower. For whatever reason I wasn’t getting good focus and just said oh well.. and move on. When I looked at my photos afterwards, I saw that I really liked this. The flower behind it is in focus and it either looks like mini suns or a strand of party lights hung up in front of the leaf. One of my favorites of the day.
Blooms not always best
Today I went to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens – it was a beautiful day outside. They were having their Orchid Daze and usually I would have been posting pictures of the orchids themselves. As I have been several times now I looked for other details. So the three photos I have focus less on the blooms than textures. The one orchid bloom I show is very fuzzy and has trapped water. The other pictures I liked were of spotted leaves and stripped bark. Not quite sure how folks take pictures in the tropics, when I entered the one room I had my camera under my shirt – only briefly taking it out to snap a shot and had to keep cleaning the lens. As the work week hits tomorrow – most likely it will be more buildings and backyard shots LOL. Hope the weekend was great!
