This plumeria of a purple-and-gold variety is from the island of Guam. Like little stars, plumeria flowers dot the grass, sidewalks and ponds in the morning before anyone has a chance to make the place neat again by cleaning them out. This flower fell into a fountain and drifted all the way to the spill edge, barely hanging on to the ledge. The waves were rocking it back and forth and it looked like it will fall down any moment, yet it hung on and never fell. Pavel spent a long time watching the little flower, and you can too, thinking about the warm and humid air of the tropical island, and the clouds overhead, and the rain that will shower the ground soon, and the sea breeze that quietly moves though the palm trees and plumerias, shedding the little, fragrant flower stars onto the ground.
This photograph will look its best on a light colored background. It does not have to be illuminated well but if it is, the flower will really stand out and shine like the little star it was at that moment on that tropical Pacific island.
