50/365 Primes: Two Flowers in Full Blossom

Two different varieties of flowers blossoming in their spring time. I'll save the best on for last.

My daughter entered 3 times in the solo and ensemble competition.  What a go getter! While we waited between her playing times I found this flowering, crabapple I think, tree in one of the schools court yards. I got right up to it with the wide 31 Limited and the fragrance was divine.

Camera: Pentax K1

Lens: SMC Pentax FA 31mm f/1.8 Limited

ISO 400  31mm  f/5  1/320th hand held

For me, I like how some of the flowers are in focus inside the tree in this photo.

Now...For the best blossoms. I used video with a hotshoe mounted mic.

Microphone: Rhode VMGO Video Mic Go

My daughter has been playing the cello for about 10 years. The past 18 months she has battled carlpe tunnel syndrome and is currently winning the battle. She is a 17 year old high school senior and is just blossoming into the prime of her life. This is the Grave movement of a Samartini piece.

Looks like I need to make notes about camera settings because I'm not getting EXIF in Lightroom. Camera was sitting on my lap. 31mm.

I didn't want to make a big production of recording so I put the camera in my lap and focused the best I could.
