The storm has created some strange casualties. This agapanthus flower found its way onto our lawn, looking decidedly bedraggled.
… five minutes with some agapanthus
I’m really enjoying that delicious lull between Christmas and early January, when the city’s commuters are granted an extra couple of hours in bed, and my early morning walks are free of the usual traffic noise and pollution. In that calm, I find myself much more aware of the world around me.
Not that the agapanthus is easy to miss.
It seems that every garden and roadside, every park and verge is home to clumps of these large, mainly purple, flowers.
And, standing at waist-height, they are ridiculously easy to photograph — even for “she-of-the-dodgy-knee”. Easy to spend five minutes photographing in fact.
So my Friday Flowers are also a RegularRandom offering this week.
- 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 this post
