grace under light

[pink-eyed Cyclamen]

I found my clunky old tripod today and I immediately teamed it up with my old Macro lens and brought the fancy new camera and a flowering plant to a south window just before the sun disappeared.

If you get close enough absolutely anything can look great - or, well, at least interestingly abstract.

The three images below were done without benefit of tripod, which should be more than obvious, although I think its absence was no real liability in the case of the smudgy detail of the Spence. And oh yes, that subject had in fact started out pretty much as an abstraction already.
