Day #2479

Day #2479Title: Fuchsia Impression
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 40mm EF f/2.8 STM
Notes: After my first Microfleur adventure a couple of days ago, I realised that I need more flowers to press. Today I visited Mum & Dad who always have lots of different blooms in their garden. They were happy for me to go round and harvest a few interesting specimens. I took the Microfleur with me as it’s best to process the flowers as soon after they are picked as possible, and I would not have time to do anything with them until tomorrow otherwise. These three Fuchsias had just come out of the press – I loved the way they happen to have arranged themselves on the internal cotton liner – already stained with previous flowers’ presence.
