  • Flowers Lighted by Warm White Light

    Downtown dining street in Shenzhen China. A flower shop highlighted by a warm light. It was a calm and peace unlike the bustle of the surroundings.

    Is this a Hero or a Villain to you?

    Is the restaurant district in downtown Shenzhen must be noisy?

    That is why Mr. Ke was relieved to see a flower shop filled with incandescent light.

    Flowers basically do their best in the daytime, so I am OK with white light.

    I think what matters first in a florist is not color temperature but color rendering.
