Bhavana and I stopped in at Blooms at Belle Mead yesterday. We were looking for a plant for flowers to take to a house-warming party. We spotted these beautiful bright yellow hibiscus flowers as we walked around the store and decided we wanted one. The yellow is so vibrant and yellow happens to be our daughters favourite colour. Blooms have hibiscus in many other colours, including yellow with a red centre, and a lovely orange. I'll be back to get a few more plants.

I took both of these images with a Lensbaby Composer. One of the challenges with using a Lensbaby is that it has no electronics; the camera and lens are operated entirely in manual mode. The Nikon has no information about the glass; which means Adobe Lightroom has no information about the brand or focal length as well. So after I import my photos into Lightroom, I use an application called ExifChanger to add the lens information to the image files. From my research, the Lensbaby is a 50mm lens ( 75mm on a DX camera body ).
