The seductiveness of ume; Minami-oi, Tokyo

My wife and I went out for a spot of shopping first thing yesterday morning, at the veggie shops and other little local shops near our place. On our way home we came back on a path near Toshiba Hospital, which has a lot of flowerbeds bordering it. These ume were growing in the front garden of a house at the end of that lane.


Very close-up, at the minimum focussing distance of the lens and where the magnification is 1:1.
