For Linda

By ChiliMan
Thanks for the response to my dried leaves, people Smile

Now then…these are from Cassandra’s Roses… here …and here .


-----

Linda, here are the dried roses I was telling you about – these were taken on the 26th of November last year. The red ones didn’t dry so well. I liked these two white ones so I took various shots. Not particularly stunning but I hope you like ‘em anyway Smile

-----

Will catch up with everyone soon. It’s been a long day. A good-ish one, though. Finally got myself a portable harddrive. A fit-in-my pocket 320GB one which was on sale. I’m not really a gadget person but I’ve got a huge grin on my face. Looking forward to giving my files and folders a good and well-needed perestroika.

It's the textures which I find really striking here. Nice shapes in those Roses too. The light through the small area of glass looks very pleasing. Interesting you've aquired an external hard-drive. Been toying with that for storing images too.

Fabulous light! And textures. These seem to be coy, bashful, old ladies blinking in the spotlight.

They take on a different form and create so much texture when they dry, I see them like the skirts of ball gowns as the petal curls seem to form the swirl of them - very nice Andrew, I think they can be and are more interesting than fresh ones

Hi Andrew, well something different that is for sure. I love the colour and texture on these flowers and your black bg. Would like to have seen them in something other than water though. Seeing as they are dried LOL. A nice wicker basket or something, just a personal preference not meant to be a critic LOL. A super idea and I quite like it Hope Linda did.
Regards
