Javea Part 1: Pretty Flower Pictures of the Day

Mark’s mum lives in this beautiful little old town called Javea (Xabia) on the Costa Blanca in Spain.  We spent our holidays there this year and I’ve just finally gotten around to editing the pictures I took during our visit.  On one particular day I arrived home to find myself locked out of the house, so I killed a little time by exploring in my mother-in-law’s garden and getting these super girlie pastel-y images by shooting the gorgeous tropical flowers that we don’t get in England but which remind me of my California days.  I used a fast 28mm prime lens open opened up nearly all the way to get the lovely bokeh in the background. (Of course the perfect winter Spanish sunlight was the key ingredient… Using that same lens on those same settings on a grey English winter day hardly gets the same effect.)
