Macro Monday: Grey Ladies
Faded cyclamen blossoms trimmed from the plant and discarded. Beautiful, I think, even in decline.
And, a P.S. to the mysterious-looking shot I posted for Shadow Shots this week. Several people have written to ask how I did that, so here's the big secret:
I placed a bubble-glass paperweight close to a wall, turned off the lights, and shone a flashlight through it. You're seeing the shadow on the wall. (I was kind of hoping someone would notice the streak of light on the sphere, the "crack in the universe". Seems I'm the only Doctor Who fan in the bunch.)
Anyway. Here's another one. I may do a whole series, as the shadow changes so dramatically depending on the angle of the flashlight.
