A Bunch of Naked Ladies (In Color, Too!)

Well, now that I got your attention, at least from the title, here are some truly lovely flowers!  These are commonly known as “naked ladies” because they flower first, lose their blooms, and then send out leaves.  It’s rather odd compared to most other plants!  These are also known as “amaryllis belladonna” which seems fitting as they are really beautiful flowers.

I got this roll of film back today.  I used my Nikon F3HP and Fuji Color 200.  The F3 was, I think, the first Nikon camera to have an autoexposure ability.  I set it on that and shot the entire roll of 36.  It did fine!  I was actually very pleased with both the film and the camera.  Scanned on a Pakon 135.

I rather liked the detail of this picture, but the detail is not the leaves of the amaryllis, but the bokeh and the crosshatching of the screen.  My studio window faces east, and this is what I saw early in the morning as the sun appeared over the horizon.

I do need to wash my windows and screens!
