One Photo A Day | Day 225 | Red Hot Poker

One photo a day challenge: Day 225.

I have always been interested in unusual looking flowers. My goal is to photograph flowers that look different than what is commonly seen.

I have seen these flowers in the past. But I have never pulled the trigger on buying one. I just wasn’t sure I enjoyed the look of them enough.

I wasn’t sure I could create interesting photographs of them.

This time when I saw the Tritoma Flamenco flowers at the nursery I knew the time was right. I had spent all summer photographing flowers. It was definitely time to try something different.

This plant grows spikes that terminate in a cluster of tubular blooms at the top.

Hopefully I am able to keep these flowers going for a while. I am not convinced this is the best I can do photographing them.

I want to have more opportunities to try out other photography possibilities.
