Hospital Roses
In reply to WhyNot, 8 months ago

St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka has been enlarged, remodeled and landscaped over the last few years.  Somebody decided to plant hybrid roses and I just found out as I left, day before yesterday.  I only saw them because I had to wait for traffic in parking lot.  I just wanted to get out of there.  Well, I went home, got camera and tripod and went back.  Like typing, one handed photography is possible, but very slow.  The results do look as good to me as if done by someone with a pair of opposable thumbs.  And, I got a first chance to use my new and inexpensive ring light, as it was cloudy and raining and late in the afternoon.  I like the way it lights so smoothly.  I didn't think to shoot at slower SS for smaller aperture for more DOF, I was in too much distress, novocaine wearing off.  I ought to change my forum name to Lefty;  Rich

All four with E5, ZD 50mm macro and Bolt VM-110 ring light.
