Red or Pink?


the day was cloudy and I played with the faster shutter speed for capturing canine photos. I snapped Jake and there hung this fantastic and perfectly formed red hibiscus.  I KNOW I have posted tons and tons of these flowers but what can I say? it was there and you know The Rest of The Story.



As I walked away from the red, I saw 2 twin pink hibiscus, and that is the end of this story.

I actually prefer yellow hibiscus. But on your page, I prefer the red.

Have you talked to Ginny? I was going to see them tonight, but Ginny emailed me that he had gone to the hospital with sever pains in his stomach. I don't know anything else.

I think the pink. Which is funny because I'm not a pink person.

Remington said...

Hope your're having a good day! The hibiscus is so photogenic and these are both beautiful. It's not surprising that you love photographing such a gorgeous
flower.

Love the colors Sandra.
The pistils of the hibiscus always fascinate me. they just beg to be photographed.

photowannabe said...

I have been wondering about Ginny too.
Please fill us in on her and the developments of her hubby Phil too.

They are lovely flowers. I find red flowers hard to take good photos of - I'm impressed.

Hibiscus blooms are so dramatic. I love your capture of color, texture and form. Our hibiscus are shredded by Isaac, but thankfully home and family are all okay.

Oh, and what is plural of hibiscus?
