We’ve been wandering around the neighbourhood for walks to break out of the isolation blues and marvelling at the different plants we see. I would love to build a hedge of this particular bush. The rich, deep red of the flowers contrasts and compliments the deep green of the leaves. Similar to the effect seen on those Christmas flowers. Oh, what are they called??? On, yeah, Poinsettia! I took many shots from a faraway and a few close-up… the tension between the colours is fascinatingly intimate. For this one, I cropped in closer, tweaked the definition, contrast, and brightness.
I wanted to capture the spongy texture of the flowers. I hope I did. I feel the textural difference between the leaves and flowers both draws them together and places them in an almost surreal state of looking manufactured.
