The Way I See Things


With love

This isn't the shot I thought I'd be posting today. Because it was chilly and the light was bad I decided to break out the light pad again, and after a bit of rummaging in the garden I cut a spray of flowers from the perennial pea (Lathyrus latifolius) to use as today's subject. I tried a single selective-focus image of the spray but wasn't convinced by it, so then I made a six-shot focus stack which I like more - but I still wasn't quite happy so I went off out again to see if I could find something else.

While I was looking around I noticed that all the sempervivums I have growing in a shallow pot on the patio are suddenly coming into flower, and spotted that this one has somehow created a rather sweet little heart design. This seemed like a nice image with which to finish the week, and thank you for all your kind attention towards several of my photos over the past few days, so I fetched the camera and photographed it in situ. The perennial pea has gone into my light pad album on Facebook.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.
