Haven't Posted for an Age - so here is some recent(ish) stuff

As the title says I have not posted for an absolute age. So here is a selection of one of the particular ongoing projects I am doing which looks at individual flowers/flora by natural light.

1. Magnolia by Window Light



2. Rose by Window Light



3. Tulip by Window Light




cheers


Hec

Worth the wait, Hec, I like these very much indeed.

Thanks all.

I know Ed - I haven't posed any deep philosophical questions for some time. Work is so full on at the moment that the more vexing questions troubling the world are not things that I have pondered. Rest assured that I will return to discuss such matters as why is a man's belly button fluff always blue.

Thanks again everybody. I seem to be doing a lot of this sort of image at the moment almost to the exclusion of other stuff at times.

The magnolia was a direct "commission" from my wife who wanted a magnolia from our garden hung on the wall in our dining room along side some similar style images. So we have a flowers by window light theme in there at the moment

Jewsons, Wickes. In fact commonly available. Oddly none of the photographic shops stock them

Love them Hec. More of them and you'll need to buy a bigger wall to hang stuff on.
