Flower Photos: Flamboyant Tree at Kin Town Office
It may not be in full bloom but, I had just had to shoot this beauty today.
See, I've been known to get lazy, at times, and this was easy pickings, for me.
That's partly because the Kin Town Office is just down the street.
Flamboyant (Delonix regia) are also known as Royal poinciana.
Locally, they'd be called ( ホウオウボク) something like, Ho Wo Bouqet !
People driving by the city office see something like this.
But, I like to look at things differently.
The place can get busy and, I didn't want any people in my photos.
So, I run around and shoot from angles where I won't need model releases signed.
Remember, I said it was supposed to be an easy day ?
A book I found at the library made things a whole lot easier.
The Guide Book of Landscaping Plants in Okinawa was what I used.
It's Japanese (ISBN4-900668-63-x) if you're looking for one.
Now, I'm not very literate but, ホウオウボク gave me all I needed to know.
Once I got online, with that, links started jumping off the monitor at me.
