:Today's Flowers #34


I'm back again here at Today's Flowers after being offline for two weeks. Been too busy with my mom's eye condition. I was very happy that she regained her eyesight after her cataract operation last April 1, 2009.

These pretty petite white flowers are from my Auntie's garden who lives just beside us, the buds resembles those of sampaguita but the flowers are slightly different. I was glad that I did a pretty good shot of this one because I've had difficulty in shooting white flowers previously.

Pretty whites! Well wishes for your mother!

The second shot is particularly nice. With red or white flowers it is adventageous to avoid direct sunlight as they can reflect and spoil the colour balance.

White flowers are not easy. Many times the details get lost. If you learn to play with the white balance on your camera (I'm no expert), you can come up with all sorts of versions of whites.

They are beautiful.

Race: Sometimes the smallest bloom can show such beauty.
