Unleashed by fototaker

It’s very surprising to see this when all around it’s cold and wet. On a walk around Fisherman’s Wharf and up to Russian Hill this chilly winter day, I found this treasure and more! I was out and about earlier with a short telephoto but when I saw these jewels, I returned for my macro lens and dashed back. Captured handheld and in manual focus with a slight wind on the streets of San Francisco with my Canon EOS 7D and the Canon compact 50mm macro EF f2.5 lens

    That would the flower head of one of the ‘onion’ family – chives, shallots, onions of course and garlic (did I forget anyone?) if allowed to go to flower/seed … simply beautiful macro, T :-)))

  • hahahaa thanks but this is a flower and though i’ve seen it often, can’t remember which! if it were of garlic i’d yank it out and take it home! hahahaa this is just meters away from a very big market and clothing store! ;)
