Wisteria in flower, growing round a front door and balcony

I was a scientist for many years, working in the field of medical research, both in academia and in industry. In late 2004, I left science to pursue my creative interests in photography and the visual arts.

I am now a professional photographer living in South East London. You can view my professional photography website at:- www.whitewindmillphotography.co.uk

    Lovely shot of what looks to be a very old plant (such a very thick trunk!) I’m also glad I now found out what a ‘Wisteria’ actually is – and it’s one of my favorites; in Dutch we call them ‘blue rain’. Wish I could grow one on my balcony, but they need deep roots – no way to grow one in a tub!
    Congrats on your feature!

  • Thanks Marolein, yes this is a mature plant, they are very spectacular when in full bloom!

    you are very welcome John – I am not a goup co-ordinator – I just read the instructions for this challenge – to view the group member’s images, and nominate someone else’s work – a different concept. I wonder if anyone will find any of my works and decide they like them too..
