La Dama de la Noche Series

Last night's flower bud has become tonight's spectacular beauty. "La Dama de la Noche" is a name attributed by a friend from the Philippines, but I know the plant as a double-flowering night-blooming cereus. Different shots with alternative exposures and finishes can be seen here as the flower opened fully.

I think this sepia version is my favorite. The subject matter, the composition and the sepia tone all seem to suggest Japanese photography from the early 20th century to me.
