Beautiful Triffids

I bought two bunches of these popular wedding flowers for the first time and wasn’t impressed. Read more below

The stalks of my Freesias seemed too tall and spindly, with the blooms perched on top like Triffids. And I was none too keen on their pungent fragrance.

It wasn’t until I photographed these flowers at close quarters that I appreciated their beauty, with delicate mauve and robust pastel pink and yellow petals.

By using a variety of backgrounds, these specimens became photogenic and versatile. I wonder what’s next in my ongoing indoor floral project?

  1. Lovely work Mike. Still in lockdown? We’ve been allowed a little bit of freedom but still the Qld. border is closed to the southerners. I was going to say keep them until they dry as they make lovely subjects but I see you have already thrown them out :(

    • Thanks Lee, these were good at close quarters but looked a bit odd. Ah yes I should dry some stems for a different view. Great tip! Our lockdown eases further on Saturday with the opening of pubs. That’ll end well I’m sure! Unlike you guys we’re obviously quite happy to sit with a relatively high level of infection. Hmmmm…


  2. Rhubarb & Custard and Single Stem are gorgeous!! You know I have a love-hate thing with (my) flower photography, but you have a real knack of pulling it off… Lovely work, Mike! I look forward to seeing the next instalment!
