Plantgasm - I love plants too much. By Derek Powazek.

Mighty Aphrodite

Okay, so I may have gone overboard on the Amaryllis timelapses this year, but don’t worry, this one is worth it.

Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) “Aphrodite”. One photo every minute for 24 hours. It goes red during the second half because it’s opening at night. As usual, the music (Elliot Smith’s “Bye”) is used with admiration if not permission.

I don’t get bored with your timelapes! They are always
so beautiful and I enjoy hearing the music you select
to go long with it(always a surprise!) Love Amaryllis
and as long as you take the time to share your work, then I will take the time to watch them.Thanks for sharing the beauty!!

Derek! This is gorgeous, thanks. A warning, though: When I someday finally get ready to make my “plants blooming and dying and decomposing and growing again” short film set to my favorite epic metal songs, I’m enlisting you for the video direction. Yes? Happy New Year to you and Heather!
