Falling Blooms

By crookymonsta
These are the last blooms from my Frangipani and, as always, fell off whilst they were still fresh. It has bloomed for about six weeks, so I have had some flowers on the plant and some in a bowl all that time - makes the room smell lovely.

I pinned these onto hanging black velvet to try to give a sense of them falling. Taken hand held in the north facing conservatory using natural light.

Thanks for looking, C&Cs appreciated, as always.

Regards, Sandra

Very well thought out, Sandra. My little frangipani plant is only in bud now, for the first time, so i am hoping it will make it to the flower stage before the cooler weather comes. Carol

Very clever work.
The exposure on the whites is great, perfect in front of the dark background.
