this sun star was given to me by my boss although i can’t remember why. it came in the tiniest flower-pot and looked more like a little tree. it was rather unique looking and the only thing written on the bottom of the flower-pot were the words mini star. after some searching i found the common name. i would love to have a yard full of this stunning colored flower.
about this photo: i placed it on the window sill outside the house so that i could use the green vegetation in the backyard as a back drop. i used my tripod, wired remote and macro lens (60 2.8) to capture. this is not a crop but a true to life-sized photo.
greetings and happy 2014 i hope! i took a photography break last month, but will be posting on a regular here. i still have a lot of photos in my archives i’ve never uploaded and will be posting them. this photo was taken in july of 2011. i absolutely HATE the laundromat, but sometimes i have to go. i took this photo to be included in my urban photography book.
wooohooo. just got home from work and hurried to take my last photo of the year!!!! thanks to everyone who commented, signed up for email deliveries, subscribed, etc. i’ll still be taking and uploading photos, but not every day. it’s not that easy and there were days i wanted to quit. of course, i’m glad i didn’t and it’s nice to see something to completion. enjoy 2014, i will be asleep and see it when i wake up, hopefully. if i wake up dead tomorrow i’m going to be pissed!
