This was an alternate idea for "colorful", one of the categories on the Chrysta Rae Photo Scavenger Hunt last spring.  This idea was more clever than the one I went with.  And I always thought it was kinda neat.  So here it is for:

I usually correct for the distortion caused by a wide angle lens, but not this time.  The scene has an other-worldliness to it, so why make it look more "real"?
Another scene from Sunday's Urban Exploration.

My fiancee gave me a beautiful bouquet for my birthday (aka subject matter) so I've spent all this week photographing gorgeous flowers 🙂

Good afternoon Google +

It's been a busy week so I wanted to do a quick share from my recent visit to Shaw's Garden.  This was one of the tulip gardens in bloom. 

Amazingly, when I went the week before, I thought the few scant tulips I saw were all there were. 

I'm so glad I went back, because the variety and color on the second trip was amazing!

Happy Spring everybody!

Color My World

I was surprised to find a perfect match to all of these outlet colors in my crayon box.  Even the 'metallic' gold and silver were represented.

Isn't it great to see something colorful and utilitarian?!

For anyone who wondered what a Four o'clock flower looks like after it opens, here is a lovely collection of them.  These were grown from seed.  I always get the "broken colors" mix, which gives these speckled and striped flowers.

I just got a new shipment of silicon wafers this week!  Very exciting for me, since they are rare and hard to find, but absolutely gorgeous and infinitely fun to photograph.  I got some great bokeh shots of the lights reflecting from this one so I am sharing it today for:

In a moment I'll post a photo of the whole wafer.  I had never seen silicon wafers until I went to the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley, California.  They had a bunch of them and I fell in love with the flash and the color.  Even then it took me months to find a source to buy them.  This one came from:   http://stores.ebay.com/Silicon-Wafers-Inc
