I captured this wonderful flower ( Calliandra haematocephala) last summer in my friends’garden, a small paradise “somewhere in the Cévennes”….
It was my second entry in the October Genre Challenge !
Uploading this picture is for me kind of luminotherapy, treatment of seasonal depression…
Amazingly, the last days other artists have also uploaded nice pictures of the same flower :
"FROM MY NEW CAM.........."
and "BUTT END OF A BUGGER........" by SNAKEY
"Powderpuff in bud"
and "Powderpuff blossom" by terrypom
Thank you very much for your comments on my previous upload :
" All Saints Day 2006 "

Very good, technically. Notice that I don't understand the choice of composition that is not the best... But the photo is eye catching indeed !
