I remember very well where I was when I took this Flower a Day photograph! That isn’t always the case as many of them are dating from a good few weeks or even months back. This was growing in the garden of a house very near our favourite Halifax vegan restaurant, where we were headed to pick up a take-out meal (no indoor dining, of course, during Covid). It was really windy and I had a lot of difficulty in getting the flowers in focus using this wonderful vintage Helios 44-2 lens which is manual focus. No sooner would I get the shot ready than the flowers would be blown into a soft blur! I perservered and here we have the begonia flowers, brilliant red memories of a summer past. The meal was eaten in the car, which was not exactly my idea of a dinner out, but at least it was delicious and filling. I hope this splash of summer colour will brighten the chill days for those whose winter is upon them and the late spring for our friends down under.
