A change from wildlife shots today, some shots taken in Lillian's house during my July stay and subjected to a variety of processing techniques (otherwise known as jiggery pokery). The Bouganvillea and that lovely red thingy with the sticky up bit (no rude comments please) whose name I can never remember were taken in her conservatory. The macro studies of the Physalis peruviana (Cape Gooseberry) husk were mostly taken on her very posh kitchen sink with the lovely drainer that provided those lovely subtle diagonal lines and soft reflections. All were taken using natural light.

Anyway, thank you for looking, I hope that you enjoy some of them and I hope that they might make you look anew at the discarded bits of Cape Gooseberries!

A superb set Lynne. My favourites are V1, V5 & V9.
Anthiriums are hard to photograph as they seem to reflect a lot of light, but you've
captured those well also.
I like the approach to the Physalis also with toned backgrounds.
You and Lillian must have had a ball with all the different effects you've conjured up.

An excellent, artistic and creative set of images.
I have never seen V1&9 &5kind of selective images. Compare with the three, I prefer V1's black background. Maybe the black background blends better with EPZ's black back ground..V5 makes an interesting POV.
V3&7, I prefer V3.
V2,4,6,8, 10,I love v4 most.. I think that V4 is superb! Great angle,artistic, smart lines, wonderful "movement"..
All of them are wonderful, the detail and colour are superb. Great work, Lynne.

I have always thought you uploaded a varied selection of shots Lynne,and proof here as we even have a kitchen sink.OK,it is not your own one but that is fine with me.However,there are some camera club judges I know who will deduct two points from you and tell you it is because it is someones elses WORKtop.I have never really thought as flowers being rude,but whatever happened to all these rude vegetables you used to see in the shops ? I just don't see them no more.I think there must have been an EC law passed so the shopkeepers cannot sell them anymore.Any knobbly bits on the carrots or turnips needs to be cut off now.Dunno what they do with the big red tomato with that big deep crease halfway around its circumference.I suppose they are the ones they chop up to put on top of the Pizzas.I think my favourite is the Physalis here.Dunno what one it is,but it sounds the rudest of the lot to me !!

I like your jiggery pokery Smile

The flowers with the rude bits are anthuriums and I envy the shots you've got (especially V3) 'cos they NEVER turn out well for me. Those shiny waxy surfaces always scupper my attempts at a decent shot Sad

V4 is my absolute favourite here, Lynne. Those veins stand out so well and contrastily...and the composition is just perfect too.

A super set of shots Lynne. My favourites have to be the anthuruims. My mother in law used to grow heaps of them.
Great creativity at the kitchen sink and loads of your great jiggery pokery and frames.
BTW, almost mastered a frame last night - just having difficulty with the bit at right angles, I wind up with a line across the shot!!!! Will persevere though. Moira
