Photography, Play, Travel Pretty Flowers These are in the dentist’s secret garden. I couldn’t decide which one I like best, so I posted them both. Enjoy Taken in Thailand (c) Don Charisma Share this:PinterestLinkedInPrintEmailTelegramLike this:Like Loading... Related

It is a lovely Hibiscus flower. 😉
🙂 thanks 🙂
I have painted so many of these flowers on fake surfboards used for tv props one year LOL. It’s nice to see some real ones. For awhile there I was able to paint them in my sleep – but in real life they’re so much more complex and delicate. Great pic, as always.
Part of the artists skill is in stylising and simplifying I know this very much from my little cartooning … it’s a real skill !
And yes really very ornate in real life
Beautiful flowers and so is the shot. 🙂
Thanks much appreciated 🙂
Beautiful flowers and you are right I wouldn’t know which one either and I would have done the same thing. Kat
Hey Kat, you’re a lady after my own heart 🙂
Beautiful shots of the flowers! And such a nice pink colour. Usually it’s red ones that I see, pink ones are quite unusual to me.
Thanks Halim … I’m not a major in botany, but I’m told they are hibiscus flower … now I know, I’ll look out for the red ones too !
Thanks hun 🙂
These are gorgeous hibiscus flowers! Stunning tropical plants 🙂 thanks for sharing! x
Thanks Becka, I like the bit that sticks out of the middle of the flower, happy to capture it in detail 🙂
The male parts of a flower are often the most striking (anther, stigma, etc) it’s where the most detail is. The macro setting should be default on my camera lol 🙂 x
For sure, I don’t know much about biology/botany, hadn’t realised they are male parts, so I leant something new … not sure my iPhone has a macro setting I just put it close up and try to get it to focus, sometimes it work, sometimes it doesn’t 🙂
Ah botany is fascinating! I’m a trainee horticulturist lol 🙂 I’m always surprised at the great quality of photos taken with iphones/smartphones, it’s often as good as having a proper camera x
lol, well there’s only so thin i can spread myself … and you know what, I like that people can correct me and fill me in … gives my readers something to do, lazy so and so’s !
yes pretty much, smartphones can do some amazing shots these days … maybe I’ll venture in the “Pro” camera world at some point, but really no rush for me …
Haha where would we be without our readers! 😉 x
Living a peaceful life, creating stuff for ourselves ?
Maybe. . . peace is good but I prefer the crazy times lol x
Sometimes I do sometimes I don’t, depends on the day and the who it’s with …
Very true 🙂 x
Like my sleep too, and peaceful is what I want to be when I’m sleeping 🙂
I love sleeping. . . I would come first if it was a sport lol x
LOL, so you’re probably as peaceful as me then … I could get gold medal for sleeping !
Haha same! Olympians have nothing on me lol 😉 x
So we’re two peas in a pod !
What a coincidence! I just took one of same exact flowers today. 🙂
Great minds think alike ?
Gorgeous! We have these all around our neighborhood in Panama – you can pluck them up and make tea out of them 🙂
Thanks, and I didn’t know they are a tea ingredient till today !
Neck and neck almost – I vote for no. 1 . Des.
🙂 thanks Des
Wonderful! Good Sunday, dear Don 🙂
Hey Niko, and to you my friend … as always a pleasure 😉
the second one is my fav – the angle makes it look like the pistil is growing – but both shots are beautiful = and this used to be one of my favorite flowers = but I think this is a hybrid Hibiscus – either way – your dentist must have a nice garden!! glad you were privy to it.
I couldn’t chose, so posted both … the lighting is slightly different and the first photo is slightly more detailed … not my dentist BTW, just happened to be passing and saw a photo op !
Beautiful!! Always love the flowers 🙂
Thanks Elaine, flowers are good 🙂
Thank you for sharing these. It is still too cold here (Midwest US) to grow any flowers. I miss my usual spring blooms!
Hey Chris, you are welcome … and spring will be here soon i think 🙂
Reblogged this on Journey Of A Nifty Day Trader.
Thanks for the reblog 😉
Your indecisiveness is echoed by me… Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Funny how we can find such awe-inspiring creation anywhere. Even at a dentist’s office. 😉
LOL, especially at the dentists office 🙂
The flowers are very beautiful, but my favorite is the second picture. The reflection of the sky is amazing. It adds to the beauty of this photo. Great job capturing all of this beauty 🙂
Thanks much appreciated … I couldn’t possibly pick a favourite, I like them both 🙂
I love them both. So beautiful, and I wish we had some blooming here now. All we have outside my dentists office are a huge set of teeth.
PMSL … same as dentist in UK … yawn !
I like your style Don Charisma!
Thank you !
Wow they are beautiful Don. Thanks for sharing 🙂
You are very welcome hun 🙂
I love hibiscus, they are so beautiful. Nice pic.
Thanks much appreciated 🙂
Reblogged this on Photos That Inspire Words.
Thanks for reblog Paulette, hope all is well with you 🙂
I am doing alright, considering I have a fractured left wrist and am still trying to have a place of my own by way of either a subsidized housing program somewhere, nice clean cut roommate or moving from Ca.
How are you?
I wanted to tell you I nominated you for The Light of The World Award.
I couldnt seem to save the jpg file award, but you’ll see it on Amreen Shaikh’s site Painttheworldwithwords.wordpress.com.
Beautiful photos you have been creating these days.
Thanks hun, much appreciated 🙂 All well thanks, occasional bumps in the road, but that’s life …
Don’t know what to say over the housing issue, it’s unsettling not knowing where we’re going to live I know … Keep looking and stay positive, I’m sure something that you like will come up soon …
Glad you posted both. There is never too much beauty to see.
I liked both, so post both … and yes both are beautiful 🙂
The colour is intense. They are very beautiful.
Thanks leslie, much appreciated 🙂
I love the hibiscus! These petals also make a tasty tea or drink. 🙂
Well that’s two things I didn’t know, the plant name or that I could make a drink … thanks hun 🙂
You’re most welcome!
Beautiful, delicate – love the deep crimson to pastel pink colors.
Thanks hun, and these are straight off the camera, apart from logo and cropping …
