Today, we have a guest host for Lens-Artists Challenge. Cee is our host and she asks for one single flower.
For this challenge, I limit myself to only one image.
This schlumbergera (I guess it’s a Schlumbergera truncata) grows well in our living room. I love the intense red color. As the window in our living room goes to the north, it’s not hot and not too bright. So, each year we’re getting some wonderful blossoms around Christmas (mostly in early January). We have a second one with pink blossoms. But I like the red one more.
In German it’s called Gliederkatus or Weihnachtskaktus. Translating it literally, the first one would translate to element or rank cactus and the second one Christmas cactus.
When photographing blossoms, it’s sometimes hard to limit yourself to only one blossom. But in this case the single blossom stands for its own and can be admired without getting distracted.
I guess, I need to pause for the next 2 weeks, because I’m going on a trip on Monday morning ’til the end of June. My regular posts are pre-scheduled.
