Another Day, Another Bit of Beauty

Day 2 of walking with the dogs yesterday. If I keep it up for another week, I hope to have some sort of routine going. In the meantime, here's my tangible reward from yesterday's walk. I think it's some sort of hibiscus. Though what any self-respecting hibiscus is doing blooming prolifically in the middle of a Melbourne winter, I don't know. Its colour and texture remind me of the hand-dyed cotton I posted a couple of days ago.

The technical difficulties of taking this photo with my compact digital reminds me that I have a multi-page manual to read. I wanted to use the macro manual focus setting, but to do that I would have had to find the settings for aperture etc. I looked around, but no luck. I'm sure the manual clearly shows where the setting are. Oh well, I'll get there eventually.

that flower is a sweety and you did an amazing job with the auto focus macro. what physical contortions did you have to engage to get the pic? :)

I may as well confess, I made it easy for myself by picking the flower and taking the photo at home:) There were so many, I'm sure it won't be missed.
