I have a lot of photos of flowers. Here is a big bunch of pink and red ginger flowers. The ginger family which comprises the galangal, ginger, bunga kantan (the flower for laksa) and other species produce unique shape flowers. This flower is very hardy and beautiful in flowers arrangements.
These are photos I took during the Penang International Floral Festival which ended yesterday.
Below is a photo of orchid. Orchid is also another type of flower which comes in all kind of forms, shapes and colours. Malaysia has many rare species of rare orchid not found anywhere else in the world.
These photos are taken with my very old camera, Canon A10. Surprisingly, this camera produces rather nice photos, considering that I had given the camera to my toddler to play around the house, like a toy. A hardy camera indeed!
The below is a photo of gerbera. I love gerbera for it’s ‘artificial’ look. Gerberas are often used in flowers arrangement too because it looks really pretty in many shades of colours. I am not sure what those berries-like plants are. I like this photo for the different focus, of blur and sharp objects.
I realised that to take great photos, one does not really need a very advance camera. It lies more in the composition of the objects, angles, combination of colours and most of all, a deep interest in photography. The fact that I can snapped these photos with a camera that is already out of production, only 1.3MP and several years old is proof.
