Birmingham Blooms

ND – Gorgeous Hot Sunny, Blue

When Birmingham Blooms, it really is beautiful. All of these plants were shot within Birmingham city centre, or the innermost parks. Except one. One image comes from New Zealand. See if you can find the odd one out.

Bee on Yellow Flower

Burgundy Sprout

Many of the photos here were taken in Birmingham’s Cannon Hill Park. You have to catch the flower beds at the right time of year though. The gardeners had certainly done a wonderful job by the time I arrived with a camera.

Yellow Isolation

In “Yellow Isolation” the flower is not the best kept example I could have used. It’s a little ragged, and shot from the side like this is often not a flowers’ best angle anyway. If I had taken a very close-up shot then it would just have been a shot of a flower head past its prime. However, I pulled back and defocussed the background heavily. The most important aspect that makes this picture though is the (almost) lack of other flowers in it. This tired little thing is hanging onto life, all alone, and that’s what I feel this shot captures.

Keeping Rear Guard

In “Keeping Rear Guard” I love the fact that there’s a lineup of daffodils looking towards the river at the back, but one daffodil stands out, appears to have turned and stepped away from the lineup and is protecting their backs. This composition brings into focus this one flower.

About nakedigit

I have legs and a camera. I also occasionally use a passport. The camera with my brightest lenses can almost (almost) see in the dark. So the only thing stopping me from putting it all together regardless of where and when i am is, well, me really! However, when i don't completely muck it up the results may end up here on this blog and also my Flickr page. I now Twitter and a website is coming... ND August 2010
