While waiting for a takeaway smoothie at a little cafe in Auckland (The Botanist), we browsed their little attached florist. I was quite fascinated by this weird pink flower. I think it’s some kind of Protea, but I’m sure someone can correct me here.

Anyway, five minutes of shooting makes for a good RegularRandom – again with my 30mm macro lens.

Would you like to join in the RegularRandom brigade? Hereโ€™s how:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it โ€“ no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light thatโ€™s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

Looking forward to seeing your shots.

  1. Proteas are unusual flowers and not my favourites to be honest, I find them too rigid, but how like you to find one in pink! A pretty baby pink at that. Must be one of your Australian proteas as I cannot remember seeing that colour in South Africa.

  2. Never seen a protea this colour DJ but it is so you… I’m back with a regular random this week. Photos took 5 minutes but post took much longer. Are you still doing this challenge?


I'd love to hear from you!
