Wednesday Special 03



Two Fridays away, on the way back home I passed by Seven Eleven and there were 2 little kids – most probably 5-6 years old sitting at the side of the mini mart selling jasmine buds. One whole tray of these fragrant flowers. Despite I didn’t really know what I could do with them, I ordered one bag. They were so happy for successfully making some money. All I could think of was that I had to take photograph of these little cuties the following morning.



Storing them in fridge overnight, they were ready to pose for me the next morning. Snap snap snap…. I had so much fun. Since it was a Saturday and I was totally free (T works on alternate Saturdays) I could indulge myself in exploring shooting angles almost endlessly. No work, no time pressure, no appointment, it was just me and my jasmine buds.

  2. I'm glad that you decide to buy jasmine bud! And made smile on their face, it's really nice to share happines with them. And you wont regret buy that.

    In my country,it's common to see jasmine bud on Wedding Ceremony. I decorated my hair with jasmine bud on my wedding ceremony. Will share my wedding picture someday, and you will know what I'm talking about. :)

  10. Love the heady fragrance of jasmine. We make garlands of them to adorn hair or offer the deities in our temples.
    Can imagine the smile on the innocent faces. :)

    Saw the situation there on the news yesterday. Hope things are fine with you and family.

  19. OMG! I love the scent of these flowers. I've seen these only in California, not here in MI. These are called sampaguita in the Philippines,actually it's the national flower. They are also sold in garlands usually sold by kids along the side streets. And commonly used as altar offerings. Your shots are gorgeous.
