This Story Is a Horror

Botanists developed a flower so perfect, they worship it as god. They formed a cultivar. They call it the Flame.

Priests of the cultivar, posing as florists, are trying to spread the Flame. Don’t let them. Only you can prevent florist friars.

Breakdown

Breakdown

Tigress could use a break about now. She may think the situation is ropeless, but all she needs is a little focus.

Depth can be enhanced by having the background lit darker than the foreground.

Photographed for this week’s FlickrFriday and Macro Mondays challenges, “Shot from Above” and “Broken”.

I have to watch my shows.

One way to make a photo more disturbing is to turn it not obviously upside down. Viewers can tell something’s wrong, but they’re not sure what. Other ways are to make it slightly redder and the lighting a bit harsher.

Corner Seeds

They’re seeds… that corn… They make corn… They’re corners… That works, right?

I used the flash on this one to enhance the contours of the dish and to bring out the satin and shine of the kernels. I found that flashing at 50% zoom brings out the best contrasts in macro photos, at least for me with the Canon G16.

For #FlickrFriday’s “Corner” and Macro Mondays’ “Seeds” challenges.

You can’t make a cornier pun than this one. But I can, of corn.
