Oleander in Motion

Oleander thru the Lensbaby Spark glass eye. I like the feeling of motion and 3d achieved thru the variable focus on this lens. Even inclined to say surreal and definitely arty. Some processing with Lightroom CC; the newest version from Adobe.

Fun with Lensbaby Spark

The Lensbaby Spark is a specialty lens with a hand adjustable bellows to vary the focus in an image. It also comes with aperture shape discs that you put in to add a particular shape to the bokeh. The results are fun and often surprising. This photo reminds me of a drawing class exercise I did years ago. Kind of an arty dreamscape... must do more...

Orchid bloom 2015

The first bloom of 2015; I think I got this orchid about 3 years ago. The other two I got later have not rebloomed.
You can see the foliage of one of the non bloomers in the background.
