Photos that are worthy of the trees
It’s always good to see well-photographed quality bonsai. Many photos (especially on facebook) are hastily shot, often with little consideration for things like background, lighting and other elements that go into quality photography. In this case the bonsai (from The Kennett Collection) are excellent, and clearly, some effort has gone into creating photos that are worthy of the trees.
Don’t get me wrong
I’m not complaining about hastily shot photos. With facebook, spontaneity and informality are the nature of the beast and complaining doesn’t do any good anyway. It’s just that it’s nice to see quality bonsai photographed with care and precision.
This imposing azalea looks like it was made by tying a bunch of thin azalea whips together on a wire mold (if we can find something good on this technique, we’ll feature it sometime). The photo is from Kennett Bonsai’s Wall Photos on facebook. Its caption reads ‘Kennett Bonsai with Bonsai Envor & Martin Fababella.’
Is this strikingly unusual pine reaching for a cup of tea? Or bowing to it? The more I look at this remarkable tree, the more that comes to mind; but I’ll leave the rest up to you. The caption on this one says ‘Kennett Bonsai with Bonsai Envor.’
