Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

Flower Shoot

One of the women in my department grows exceptionally nice flowers. When her lilies came in really well she brought me a second bouquet; I was so touched that I celebrated the event in photography. I also noodled around with lighting.




First on the back porch with direct sun from behind.



Then on the shadowed front porch.



Where I also tried the 2x zoom.



Then into the dark living room for some flash work.



And the obligatory O'Keeffe tribute.



In-situ: my actual kitchen table.

(also proof we're STILL unpacking boxes.)


Similar shot, this one cropped (and successfully re-saved.)

I love memory cards; you can shoot to your heart's content and keep only the good stuff. I was so pleased with how these turned out that I bought photo paper. The hardcopies are equally good.
