The Teddington Gardener

A little Kalanchoe Magic, Georgia O’Keeffe in mind ….

I just couldn’t resist – this beautiful Kalanchoe thrysiflora – and I have photographed just one plant – gave me the opportunity to take rather a lot of photographs today (in my lunch break I would say) and although I have wittled down the greater number of original shots, there remain quite a few. I played around with the standard 18-50 lens and then switched to the macro – adjusting the depth of field, and the way the sunlight washed over and through these succulent discs. This is the most I could edit them down to. Honestly.

I took my camera on a tour of Petersham Nurseries afterwards, and later in the evening, as I am occasionally want to do, so I’ll add a gallery a little later before returning to the French Odyssey, touring the Dordogne and Perigord.

  1. See the resemblance with O’Keeffe’s flowers. She was apparently influenced by photography hence her cropped close-up flower paintings. Lovely photos!
