Red Amaryllis

First time to join Ruby Tuesday! For quite sometime, this blog has been missing a post for Tuesdays because I cannot find a photo meme that was hosted every Tuesday. Through bloghopping, I came across this Ruby Tuesday meme, and decided to make it my Tuesday meme here in Shutter Happenings. Thanks to "the Teach" for hosting this awesome meme.

Here, participants post a picture of anything that is colored red. Here's my entry for this week:



Amaryllis
I saw this awesome flower when sister and I went to the Lung Center weekend market last June 08. The color of this flower was so wonderful, I just had to take a picture of it. actually, I did buy an amaryllis plant, but is slowly dying now. It did give me one great flower, but after the flower wilted, the whole plant is now slowly dying. There were still some good leaves, but they were turning yellowish by the minute. Mom said all of the leaves might fall off in the next few days, but I said we will just let them be, maybe the leaves will die but the bulb might give some fresh new leaves in the future.

Photo shot using Canon Powershot A580 digital camera - set to foliage, macro, no flash. Sorry if the details weren't that clear, it's really hard to do macro shots on red subjects, and I don't know why.

It's beautiful...I don't think the color of the flower has something to do with the clarity...it's always a challenge to take photos in macro when you're using a point and shoot cam..you need an SLR with a powerful macro lens. :-)
