In the Heart of the Hibiscus

In the Heart of the Hibiscus
Originally uploaded by danielgreene.

My husband, Andy, is getting more and more involved in my photography. When he’s not my muse, he’s my assistant. 😉 He helps me by pointing out to me things that I should photograph. It was he who made me aware of our first hibiscus blossom of the year. I started taking macro shots and just got closer and closer. I never knew the tiny structures at the end (stamen?) were so fuzzy. What I love about this image — if I may say so myself — is the soft, velvetiness of the red hibiscus petals that are out of focus, while the focus is on the pistil and stamen. It reminds me of billowy red velvet.
