Black-And-White pictures seem to say so much more than colour!! See for yourselves. Pictures from iPhone and processed using snapseed.
The weather here in Cambridge has been awful for almost 3 weeks now, and as an outdoor photographer I’ve been sitting around twiddling my thumbs without a single post!
Growing Hibiscus indoors in a country like Britain poses challenges. For one, these plants need to be grown inside the house all year round, and need good warmth and sunlight. But the troubles fade when the flowers begin to appear. Big red (or orange/white depending on the variety) short-lived flowers add much-needed splash of colour indoors and offer a hint of the orient!!
I bought a bunch of fenugreek leaves yesterday from the market, and while stripping them, found a half-dead poppy bug with stalk. Within an hour of putting the stalk in a bowl of water, the flower had opened up.. This is that very same flower. Question is? Which country did this poppy originate from? It is too cold in the UK to as yet have fenugreek plants 🙂

In my earlier post I mentioned how pictures look so very different in the day time when compared with night shots. As an illustrative example, the two pictures below are of the same building, taken roughly from the same place (my hotel room in St. Andrews, Scotland) a few years ago. The night shot appears mysterious and enticing, but the day time picture of shows nothing special. The difference is just the absence of uniform light on the building, and the effect of spotlights. Which one do you prefer?
