Sharing some recent flower photographs. Hope you like, please do let me know.
I am trying to get off a post from my new Nokia N97 – its wonderful being able to compose anywhere. Everything except the photo editing was done using the phone, including the photography. Since I had to take the photo to the PC for editing I uploaded also using the same. The photo without more ado:

Please do comment
I don’t know the name of this flower, but it has been my favourite since childhood. As a kid, I used to ask my father to get me these flowers. He would leave some behind, before leaving for office. After coming home from school, the first thing I would do is to find the flowers he left for me, and make a garland.

I purchased two potted plants from a roadside vendor. Its springtime in India, and flowers are in bloom. I have always loved photographing flowers, and this purchase resulted in two more photos to be added to the collection:
Here is one of my nature photographs, from the recent collection Wild flowers of Indian summer:
