A Couple Of Images. June 2, 2008

I have a backlog of just-ok photos I’m about to shit-can (that’s techie talk, you know) and I sorta salvaged a couple I found interesting despite their dearth of technical merit.

Here’s a dreamy shot of a wood mite deep in the throat of an iris in my back yard:

I always liked these brilliantly colored little guys (and gals,) despite the fact that they actually bite! Good thing they’re only the size of a fleck of cayenne pepper, or we’d all be in trouble!

And here’s a shot of one of the mullien plants in my garden, after a night of showers:

They’re all volunteers, but I like them enough to either plant around them or, in one instance, move it into a grouping.

More on The Garden soon!

I like the iris image. It has an impressionist feel to it.

Here’s a whole body of work by a well known photographer: http://www.williamneill.com/ImpressionsofLight/index.html

Bill Neill has been doing this very thing on purpose for a number of years. Who knew camera shake could be so interesting?

Wow CR, the first one is amazing!

Thanks, Dusty 🙂

And Frau B, it was the wind, ceaseless as it’s been these past several weeks. But the result is pleasant nonetheless, n’est ce pas?

n’est ce pas? No, Hersheys! A very abstract reference from….?

I love that top photo.

Have you thought about turning the 2nd photo into a black and white? I think you could have a lot of fun messing with the contrast with those layers of leaves.

Just wondering.

Yes, he (or she) looks quite velvety and the contrasting colors are very nice.

I’m glad you saved these. The first one conjures up a nice image of Dubya crawling, not knowing that in a few moments he’s going to be devoured by a giant pitcher plant. I know pitcher plants aren’t purple, or giant, but it gave me a happy. 😉
