two plumeria

I didn’t arrange these blossoms;  in fact, I shot them with a 400 mm telephoto lens through a window screen!  They were laying on a lana’i roof, and therefore inaccessible to me.

But something did arrange them (gravity, the wind) into a pretty juxtaposition:  the flower on the right boldly facing the camera, and the flower on the left demurely turning away.  Between the two views, you can see how a plumeria blossom is constructed, appreciate the graceful cupping of the petals,  their delicately “airbrushed” edges, the bright yellow center in the front of the flower, and how all five petals merge together in a fusion of deep pink in the back.

I couldn’t have arranged these two blossoms more perfectly myself.
