This week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is ‘Change Your Perspective’, and as my orchid was right there next to me I thought perhaps I could try some different angles on the flowers to get a different perspective from the way I usually photograph it.
It now has 3 flowers and they face in different directions. I would normally take a photo from the front, focusing on the yellow callus in the middle of a flower. For this challenge I tried photos from different directions.
It has been a really interesting exercise looking at my orchid from a different angle, and has made me even more fascinated by this beautiful flower.
At the start of this post I talked about normally going straight on, focusing on the callus. Me being me, of course, I didn’t just randomly call that the callus, I spent a good while researching what you call the different parts of an Orchid flower! And then I decided to mark them on one of my previous head-on photos 🙂 So if you are ever wondering what to call a part of an Orchid, pop back here to check! Who knew that those petals aren’t all petals? Some are actually sepals!
