Playing with flowers

My mom sent me flowers after a particularly difficult week with my day job. I absolutely love flowers.  Thanks momma!

To get this effect I pulled out a winter mood light that people with seasonal depression use.  My youngest son bought it for me for Christmas a few years ago thinking it was a photography light.  He was right. The really bright white light does great things -- including creating extreme contrast.

Frost

Got up early this weekend to go to a tiny spit of overgrown land along a petroleum pipeline across from George Mason University.  Glamorous.  But of course there is beauty everywhere.  I love the softness and the color of the morning light.
