The Adenium Obesum

'Five frames, the Adenium Obesum, or Desert Rose, with the Olympus Zuiko OM 35mm F2'

A native to the Sahel regions, south of the Sahara, and tropical and subtropical eastern and southern Africa and Arabia, the thick and bulbous stemmed Adenium Obesum, or commonly known as Sabi Star, Kudu, Mock Azalea, Impala Lily and Desert Rose, is one of the other flowering plants that seem to survive and blooms periodically in my harsh and unkempt mini garden.

Though miniature in my garden pot, the evergreen can grow to 1–3 meters in height, with leaves that are simply shaped and leathery in nature, about 5–15 cm long and 1–8 cm broad, that grows spirally toward the tips of the shoots. Five-petalled tubular form flowers, in small terminal clusters, tend to be red and pink, often with a whitish blush outward of the throat, are 2–5 cm. long with the outer portion diameter at 4–6 cm.

Images were shot with the Zuiko OM 35mm F2 wide-angle mounted on the Olympus Pen E-P5. With the equivalent of a 70mm focal length and the closest focus distance 30 cm, close up shots can be done at almost macro-scale with the subject literally touching a hooded front end of the lens.

The lens, of course, is a classic in its own right. It is a fully manual focusing and aperture control lens, with an 8-elements in 7-groups construction, and a superb of metal and glass built. Measuring only 43mm in length, the Zuiko 35mm F2 is also one of the most compact version in its class. It is hardly longer than a standard lense yet it comes with a very bright F2 aperture for crystal clear vision from inside the finder.
