A scene from the local botanical garden . . . piles of Pin Oak leaves against blooming Mexican sage. If you look in the upper left, you will see some pink blooms still clinging to a tree branch.
One of the pleasures of hiking is taking in the little details along the trail, such as this small daisy-like flower with its cheerful purples and yellows.
These are beautiful flowers I found while out wandering . . .looking at the original mines in Mammoth Lakes, California . . . and looking for my husband who had wandered off. Luckily I found him, as this is not country to get lost in!
Today is dark and gloomy, presaging rain. I don’t have a lot of new stuff – in fact, nothing, really – so I wandered through the dusty digital archives, looking for something to cheer me up. Voila! The columbine!
This is a test film of flowers on my patio – Ektar 100, Welta Weltur, Epson V600. This was taken to test the sharpness of the lens – and to just use the camera!
Even though they can cause a bit of damage left unchecked, these vines and their flowers are so cheerful!
Last weekend I went up to the local botanical gardens with three different film cameras, each loaded with different film. I just wanted to use them up! I haven’t sorted out what film is with what picture, or what camera, but once I do sit down – this weekend – it will be interesting to see what combinations end up being my favorite(s).
A couple of things about this photo. 1) It is a seriously intense crop. 2) I enlarged it by 300%. Click on it to see it in all its glory. Whaddya think of the enlargement?
Digitally cross-processed film. Rather gaudy!
