Frangipanis – two out of three ain’t bad

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.
