An iris portrait, a trip to the transfer station, and a bit of shopping.

June 3, 2016

Yesterday evening, I worked on some closeups of Sheila’s iris.

This morning, after breakfast, Tim and I do a few errands.


The little studio is still set up with the hopes that another flower or seed pod will come my way. The recycling is gone, the fridge is restocked, and we had a good trike ride. As a bonus, we purchased a few extra layers for cooler weather.  Good day!

A suggestion: try it in black and white. Here is is.  Do you miss the purple?

    I have to add my comment that I do not miss the purple. The black and white version is superior and superb.

    Thanks for your thoughts on black and white vs purple. My rule is usually black and white for seedpods and plant remnants and color for flowers, but that doesn’t always hold. The iris has shape, texture, translucence, and of course, an amazing color. It’s not easy to decide.
