This is taking garden-creeping to the next level. Taken at an allotment centre, with 10s of gardens next to each other and lots of flowers/plants to photograph. I don’t have all that many photos to show though. It was quite rainy hence the water droplets but during editing I managed to figure out how to process the photo to look realistically like and overcast evening – warm rather than grey/blue (tutorial will be posted in a couple of days).
I also didn’t notice the small bug on the stalk when taking the photo and truthfully, if I hadn’t spotted it in Lightroom I wouldn’t have posted the photo. I think it gives a second element to an otherwise ordinary flower photo. I wish I had focused on it a little better, perhaps by lifting my camera to make the focal plane cut through the front of the bulb and through the bug.
Aside from the former, I think it’s quite a fitting photo to put up on my birthday.
