Orange Hibiscus Glowing

Orange Hibiscus Glowing, originally uploaded by Thomas Tolkien.

The pot plant in full bloom. Now fully settled on a different window ledge, there are four more buds waiting to burst into a feast of floral fecundity. Can the record of four stamens on one flower be beaten?

Sweet Williams

Sweet Williams, originally uploaded by Thomas Tolkien.

Dianthus barbatus

A macro shot using the D7000′s small flash limited by holding my hand over it. 60mm at around 2.8 to severely restrict the depth of field to the pastel stamen. I know the point of a good macro is to achieve edge to edge sharpness using tiny apertures, but I like fuzzy, swimming bokeh to frame the object, and throw it forward towards the viewer. Sweet Williams seem flavour of the month around here – I picked these up in a supermarket on my way back from work. The best part of the long out of county commute and daily grind.
