Little White Flower
This little white flower was sitting in a drinking tumbler on the kitchen counter top at my in-laws house, and was being gently lit from the light coming in from the window above it. It is actually a macro shot, but on the Fuji FinePix S20Pro digital camera, the macro mode is available only at the wide end of the zoom lens, which is 35mm ~ 210 mm. This gives a very unusual perspective to macro shots, as it also includes surrounding or background areas, depending upon how close the front lens element is to the subject. I could have gotten closer, but I liked this composition best, as the canisters in the background provides a bit of a graphic element to the picture.
