Frangipanis – two out of three ain’t bad

Frangipani flowers (plumeria)

Frangipani flowers (plumeria)

A heavy rainfall this morning knocked a number of frangipani (plumeria — or kalachuchi as I recently learned they are called in the Philippines) flowers to the ground. I picked up these two on the way home from shopping. I can share with you their delicate pink shade and graceful shapes but not, alas, their intoxicating scent; ah well, two out of three ain’t bad!

I often use the rule of thirds when composing or cropping an image. In this case, I photographed these two flowers so that their centres fell on intersecting lines of the rule of thirds, using the grid on my camera. No cropping needed.

  1. I love frangipani. My son has a couple on his balcony and were in bud when I was there, I shall have to ask him if they have since flowered, though I did find mealy bug so hope he remembered to spray them 🙂

  2. Elizabeth I would like to invite you to join in the black and white 5 day challenge that is taking place at the moment. I love your images and I know you can produce great B&W ones.

    There are only two rules for this challenge:

    On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
    Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

    You are under no obligation to join in and I realise you are a very busy woman, so only do it if you want to!!
