There is only one world; the world pressing against you at this minute. There is only one minute in which you are alive; this minute here and now. The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle.

The first Cosmos flower has opened so of course I had to chop it off and bring it in for a photo. Being somewhat lazy and not wanting to drag out the background colormat stuff, I chose instead to attach my plamp to a microphone stand, insert said flower into that and then use the strobe to light the front of the flower and held a flashgun just below the back of the flower pointing at the wall. I need to work on spreading the light a bit more but on the whole it worked quite nicely. Further experiments will be done in due course.......

Needless to say I had to add a bit of Lucisart Whyeth as well just because I can Smile

On the way to work this morning I found some idiot had broken off a stem of bearded iris near the office and just dumped in on the pavement. It's now in a milk bottle on my desk in the hope it will still be photogenic this evening. As it's a blue iris a touch of Lucis should work a treat Smile
