Flowers – Pincushion
Leucospermum ‘Scarlet Ribbon’ (Nodding Pincushion) – A dense compact shrub produces an abundance of 4 inch wide pincushion flowers. The multi-colored flower heads start a salmon pink color and then open to expose the orange-yellow perianth styles and shiny red tepals that look like ribbons. Captured in Santa Monica, California.
Flowers – Cannas
Cannas are spectacular summer bulbs. Paddle-shape leaves wrap in ruffles around stems, tapering to refined buds. The buds open into eye-catching flowers of red, orange, yellow, and pink from late spring or early summer to first frost. Cannas are commonly referred to as “bulbs,” although they are not true bulbs. They multiply beneath the soil from a rhizome, an underground stem. The red cannas are from Hickory whereas the golden ones are from Santa Monica, California.

Something Red – Reflections
Color has a significant impact on our perceptions, emotions and physicality. Incorporating the color red into photography denotes passion and bold emotion. Because it commands our attention, red brings text and subjects to the central focus of an image. Will be posting this week images with red as a predominant color to attract attention.
Here is an image of abstract reflections on water.
