“Begonia Close Up”


“Let the colours of your ideas be red so that all can easily notice them! And what is red? Red is a scream, red is power, red is assertion!”
― Mehmet Murat Ildan

A bit of a journey into the world of macro photography today. I’m still getting the hang of it but enjoying the results. This red begonia blossom is part of a floral display along the main street in my town. I was walking by and noticed them, immediately wanting to capture and image. It’s a less than perfect specimen, but beautiful nonetheless.

Needless to say, I will have to go back and try again. Stay tuned 🙂
