Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Challenger’s Choice

This towering Bird of Paradise plant rises two-stories high inside the Marin County Civic Center. It was planted in 1962 and survives to this day.

For Sally’s challenge this week I used the the Watts lens/Cano Cafenol film/Jolly Rainbo 2X Flash combination in the Hipstamatic app to take this photo.

    Impressive plant, Beautiful use of app really shows it off. I like the frame.
    The UUChurch in Kensington has trees in the Atrium that have been there for over 50 years thanks to sky lights.

      Thanks, Carol. We took a docent tour of the MCCC last month and learned a lot of information about the history of the building and the design/maintenance challenges it presents.

    Two stories high and that old? That’s quite a plant, Allan.

    That is a complex image with many layers to inspect. Would be nice to have a series to view changing light patterns. Happy Photo Challenge.

    Interesting image. Tough lighting conditions.

      The lighting condition was tough. I think that when the sun is farther north the floor tile will reflect enough fill light to compensate. It will be a matter of what time of day that condition will present itself.
