Alice's Hibiscus

It has been a good summer for Hibiscus. So good in fact I could not be sure where I took this. One day I shot some pink Hibiscus at Alice Keck's garden and a day or two later I shot some very similar Hibiscus near Butterfly beach at the same time of day. Good thing I was using my digital camera, I could check the date.

This Hibiscus was in the garden of a mission by San Diego. It was an overcast day which made for some nice soft light. I particularly liked this flower since most of the others were tightly closed or all the way open.

Shady Hibiscus

The angle of the light really brings out the texture of this beautiful flower. I had some fun with the little fuzzy things on the top and a macro lens too. I'll take a close look at the results and see if there is anything interesting to put up here tomorrow.

I have actually had quite a few people ask if I had pictures of Hibiscus. One of them at a show once even seemed quite irritated that I didn't.

I don't usually do shows anymore.

This Hibiscus is growing in a pot in front of a health food store in La Cumbre Plaza. It is a real beauty but I had to wait for just the right light.

The light is perfect on this beautiful flower, the angle brings out the texture of the petals. But, the Internet failed me on this one! I was not able to identify it. I'll keep lookin'.

Hibiscus

There are a couple of blocks in downtown Santa Barbara that are lined with beautiful Hibiscus. Lots of bushes as you would expect but this one in particular was on a tree well above my head.

I had someone ask me if I had any photos of Hibiscus the other day. There were two that immediately popped to mind, this is my favorite. But, as I was talking to her, I realized she was looking for more of a straight on shot.

Some subjects catch my eye better when viewed in a unique way. If not a different angle than you would normally see, then an odd lighting situation or in an interesting setting.
