A Study in Colour (Part 5)

By Silver Blue

This brings me to the conclusion of the photos that I took this past weekend at Busch Gardens. Oh, I took far more than the 27 shots you’ve seen… but these were the ones I shot with an eye toward form and colour.

Much like the snapdragons that were in front of the “window” in “Germany”,  here are another set.

Near the Roman Rapids ride in the Festa Italia section of the park is a waterfall, and shooting station where you can pay an quarter to shoot a stream of water on the passing by riders.

Daisies, Tulips and Dusty Miller come together to … I can’t explain it other than to say it makes me happy.

Using Bokeh (or depth of field to throw the background out of focus is something I enjoy experimenting with. Here, the red tulip and pink snapdragon are the same distance from the lens.

I wonder what happens once everything blooms out. Do they take the plants back to the greenhouse? Do they collect seeds? Or … are they merely turned into mulch?

A straight down shot. Almost looks like a space pod opening up!

What you first see upon entering, and what you last see when exiting the park. The change from the fountain is donated to charity.

Of course, when the heat of summer hits, these delicate pansies will be history. I’d not seen the dusty rose/lavender before, at least not this season.


Silver Blue… who will look for colour to study!
