Notes: this is just the cap of a lavender citrina. I was going to photograph a group of them but never got around to it, I just happen to snap this shot to see if the purple color would show up (Nikon image sensor doesn’t do well with purple) but these are pretty good.

Neither did my old favorite ASA 64 Kodachrome. Taylor Lockwood has mentioned to me that he finds lavender very poorly reproduced by photographic processes (in general).
I haven’t yet looked in my camera to see what I did last weekend about photography of the f. lavendula. I do remember the two buttons that were deep purple by the time of the final walk-through of the collection. I don’t know if I photographed them, but I sincerely doubt that my nice new Canon would have gotten as vivid an image as I received through my original ocular portals.
