Re: Flowers

Thanks, Andrew.  Yellow, pink and red, that rose is striking every year.  I was at the garden store to shoot koi on Tuesday and got some flowers there, too.

Day lilies make great subjects for pictures.  I was in a rut when the flowers started blooming.  I decided to learn more about artificial light photography outdoors.  I made it complicated with new equipment on purpose.  I don't want my brain ossifying due to disuse in old age.  I'll make a picture of my new rig (it will make you laugh) with a 7.5 inch articulating arm from the shoe to the end of the 12-100 holding the light.  This will prevent shadows from the lens when up close....according to my precise calculations. 

I sure hope you make it to Newfoundland, too.  It will be nice for you two to celebrate half a century.  And I look forward to the pictures and ribald stories of your libertine adventures.      Rich
