Flower Photo: Beauty and the Begonia

A Sense of Scale for This Huge Begonia 


To give the viewer an idea of the height of this plant something was needed.

The good old flip-flop equals one foot method of measurement would do, alright, I guess.

That should show you, the begonia plant is about four feet tall.

But, limping around on the stone path with one bare foot wasn't much fun.

And, the color, composition and contrast in this photo just didn't suit me.

Along came this beauty, about five feet tall (I'm guessing) and posed next to the plant.

Which photo should I keep.....

...the yellow flip-flop and begonia or Beauty and the Begonia ?
