Starting the New Year with Beauty…….

This is a Cereus Cactus Flower, it’s name Cereus is derived from Greek and Latin, meaning “torch or candle”…

Their flowers are funnel formed and large. The kind I photographed is not nocturnal as many other kinds are, this would bloom for several days.

It’s inner beauty is just mesmerizing

” Minds are like flowers, they open only when the time is right” 

-by Stephen Richards, a professional wrestler

At last this little bee came to my lens

On a very sad note that all these images were taken in a back alley in my town, not being noticed from anyone. The reason why I saw those is,  a few feet away, I  had brought flowers to the spot were a  Black homeless man was shot to dead by the police for just jaywalking the street. In remembrance of this man’s precious soul I am adding some Black and White images.

May his precious soul shine like stars as this flower does
