Radiance

Go back to any of my previous posts featuring flowers and I would have stated the obvious that flowers are one of my favourite subjects for photography. They are naturally beautiful and patient, posing endlessly for you (unless it’s a breezy day). I found this particular flower in my sister’s garden. It’s golden radiance is mesmerising. But one of the most striking aspects about the flower is that it unfurls and closes its petals every day.

The photograph I’ve posted might not be technically perfect but I think it conveys that golden radiance which is the essence of this little flower (the focus being a little off gives it a dreamy effect). Maybe a radiance such as this should also be what we should aim for in our lives.

I also captured a pic on my phone to give you an idea of what the flower looks like when it’s almost close to full bloom

Had I had an endless supply of time (my stay was less than three days), good weather (it rained a lot) and good health (I was running a fever for 1.5 of those three days) and a tripod, I may have attempted doing a timelapse of those little flowers blooming – I still might when I return eventually, if the flowers are still there. I think that would be a really nice project.

So what have you been doing with your camera lately?
