365 Project : Day 125

This flower is very common back in the Philippines, it is called Gumamela, or Hibiscus in English.  Not only it’s very pretty but it is medicinal as well.  Gumamela flowers are used as an expectorant in bronchitis, for general coughs, and as a refrigerant drink in fevers just to name a few of its uses.

365 Project : Day 063

I’m trying to do something else today, but then I can’t pull it off because the flower keeps on falling down; Then I saw some nice effect with the water, so I just roll with it 🙂 Most of the time, mistakes lead us to something… might not be what we wanted originally, but still cool nevertheless.
