The other night I brought home some irises and started fooling around with the camera. At the end of the night, I posted a note on Twitter: "Photos taken tonight: 250. Keepers: 0. Sigh." However, I pulled this one and one other one out of the pile and put them on Flickr. I considered those two to be the least-hated out of a pile of mediocrity.
This afternoon one of my coworkers was going through my flower porn set on Flickr and commenting on them. She got to this one and said, "This is my favorite!" I was aghast. The only reason it ever saw the light of day was that I liked the concept, although I thought I'd completely failed in the execution. She's asked for a print.
Speaking of prints... Mickdog, I haven't forgotten you. I've had a six-month war with the green flower and my incredible inability to get a passable print of it. I finally solved that problem this week, so your photos should be in the mail Very Soon!
