Regular Random: five minutes with a wet camellia


You know how sometimes you find a scene, an image, a fragment that’s just perfect.

A couple of weeks ago in the Auckland Domain I had such a find; a pink camellia, bruised and heavy with the rain, which had either fallen or been placed on the plinth of a marble statue. It was the back of the statue (two reclining figures from memory), so all that was really visible of the figures was a hand, the fingers slightly curled and forever unable to touch.

Regular Random is a photo challenge hosted by Desley Jane at Musings of a Frequently Flying Scientist. Please pop over and take a look;  and if you’d like to join in:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to Desley’s post.

I’m joining Sarah at Art Expedition in taking part in the Seven Day Black & White Photo Challenge.

The rules are:

Seven days. Seven black & white photos of your life. No people. No explanations. Challenge someone new everyday.

I don’t really do the “challenge someone” thing, but I invite anyone who’d like to join in to do so.
