A very nice shot of this lovely flower, Ray.
Ray: Thank you, Frank. Cactus flowers are hard to beat in the flower Beauty stakes.
Superbe fleur de cactus.
Ray: Les fleurs de cactus sont les plus belles.
Ray: I was pleased with how this shot turned out on the modest-priced smartphone, Elizabeth.

[I have not yet recovered my ability to operate my SLR camera, so have done what I can with the smartphone. Today I am charging the SLB battery, so re-training with commence soon.]

a wonderful composition!
Ray: Thank you, Philine. I was pleased with this outcome.
Magnifique fleur de cactus photo est superbe !
Ray: Je suis ravi que tu aimes l'image.
This proves that it is the photographer, not necessarily the camera, that makes the image. Well done on your not-so-smart phone.
Ray: You are very generous, Sheila.
Yes, a contrast of texture as cactus flowers are so incredibly soft.
Ray: They are very delicate, and last only a few hours.
For a phone picture the detail in this is excellent.
Ray: I think it turned out rather well for a shot with a toy cam, Brian.
such a beautiful cactus flower Ray....petersmile
Ray: It certainly stopped me in my stroll, Peter.
That is stunning Ray.
Ray: It was a surprise to find the plant thriving in this climate, Chap, and the flower was a bonus.
What a beut!
Ray: It is that, Bill.
Cactus flowers are always surprising!
Ray: I do agree, Tom.

I had a day in Bristol today with Chad, nNorma, Bill, Chris, Lisl, Ginnie and Astrid and although I had my compact camera in my camera, it was my iPhone that I used each time.

A fine flowery thing on a spiny thing.
Ray: I have not used my real camera in 3 months, Alan...but will start re-teaching myself about it today.

I would have loved to be in your group.
