roygbiV - no shrinking Violet

by Lori April. 10, 2007 4825 views

This was one of those serendipity (I just love that word, especially the “dipity” part) photos that almost got deleted. I was attempting a close up of a hyacinth. I got too close and it was way out of focus and was about to delete the shot right off but I could tell a bit of it was in focus… very in focus. So I zoomed in and zoomed in a bit more and saw my orb. A tiny microscopic drop of perfect form nestled on just one small flower on a stalk full of flowers. It was almost like that tiny Who world that Horton found. (Anyone else remember Dr. Seuss stories?)

Anyway… I thought it was pretty cool and I wanted to share it with you. So that ends the game I've been playing with myself looking for roygbiv. Not sure what to look for next. Maybe I'll start an alphabet theme looking at shapes in nature and architecture that with a little imagination, look like letter shapes.

Love the whole series! It is a good way to direct your photography.

As for deleting great photos... my third place photo was an almost delete because of the lens flare. The replacement photo which I took seconds later from a different angle was not dramatic at all.

Now I only delete photos after viewing on the computer.
