Night Studies, Hibiscus: Flower of the Day, Sept. 22, 2017

(Please enlarge all photos by clicking on the first one.)

When I came home last night, the street light was shining on this hibiscus a day past its prime. That might have been due to the rain, its age, or this tiny snail I didn’t even notice until I put these shots on my computer and zoomed in a bit.  Playing around, I couldn’t decide on a favorite. At one point I turned on a wall lamp a few feet way from it, thus the different light plays. In some of the darker shots, either the moon or a street lamp can be seen through the trees. Interesting playing around with night shots. In some, I intended the grainy, painterly effect. Who would think I could take flower shots every day for years and still be endlessly fascinated? Not a professional.  Just a very engrossed amateur. Thanks, Cee.

I don’t think I’ve ever photographed this newest hibiscus in my family.  It’s planted in a spot I don’t often visit, by the gate between the outside kitchen entrance and the back yard.  When Pasiano left the gate open, letting the dogs into the kitty domain, I went to close it and discovered this somewhat splendiferous overblown beauty. It’s not what I would normally buy.  Now I’m curious about my state of mind when I succumbed to its gaudy flashiness.

Cee has requested that I keep on posting new photos of hibiscus and I haven’t disobeyed one of her suggestions yet, so here is yesterday’s crop. Two dinner plate sized hibiscus on my brand new bush by the kitchen door:
