An Unknown Flower

weekend snapshots

Unknown Flower

These pictures were taken 28 May 2008 by the yard near Sta. Maria Church in Ilocos Sur. After visiting the church, brother and I walked to the nearest bus stop to wait for our ride going to Vigan. We were waiting so long there, and this flower was just near where we were sitting, and immediately after noticing it I already wanted to take a picture of it. But sun was too bright and too hot, I decided to wait for a nice opportunity to take some pictures.

I didn't want to miss the opportunity, so after a while of waiting for a perfect timing, I went and take my shot, amid the brightness and the heat. It was hard to check the screen if the shot was good, so I shot in good faith that the flowers were captured nicely. I have had about 10 shots, and these two were the only presentable ones.

The flower wasn't big, making it hard to take a shot. I was actually kneeling and bending myself just to take a macro shot of the flower, and I am by the bus stop! Hahahahaha... if not for the heat burning my back I will continue doing it, but I still have a long day, I didn't want to smell bad! =)

Taken using Canon Powershot A580, set to foliage, macro, no flash.

Hope everyone will have a great week ahead. Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful yellow flowers. There's something about yellow flowers that have a very refreshing feel to it :)
