this is the hallway to the resort in dominican republic we stayed at for a few hours before we moved to a private villa.  not sure what made me take this photo. i walked by and thought “ooh” and took a pic or two.  maybe it’s the symmetry.

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.
