Arum-on-black- by mikeloveridge
and one more. this single bloom has provided me with simply hours of creative fun......
Textured-arum by mikeloveridge
still investigating that same arum bloom. probably starting to run short of possible expressions of this gorgeous flower....
Arum-multiplied by mikeloveridge
another try at this layering technique. think i've got the  control now
13into1 by mikeloveridge
trying the "andre clements layering technique" 13x images blended down into one final image. this was shot using my X100Siso 4000. despite the layering there is no evidence of grain/pixel buildup. gives one a great sense of confidence for handholding in future.........
SecretLifeOfPlants by mikeloveridge
the same bloom as previous. seen as the flower is the "attractor" in the world of flowers i wanted a different take of my vision/feelings about that blossom.... 
hi all, appologies for not being as "immediate" as i should have been.
yesterday i spent the day at the oncology department discussing my  possible new drug regime.
yes, cancer is back. the good news is that it hasn't spread to my bones and the almost good news is that it is still lodged in my prostate. short of loading me with female hormones with all that that entails and the attentive side effects i have decided to just wait and see.
so i am not receiving any treatment and will rely on my "good"eating habits, exercise and a whole lot of prayer.....
  • Listening to: equilibre (cullen/manring)
  • Reading: nothing special, just too busy.
  • Watching: all that moves and doesn't move
  • Playing: my"ladies" pearl and arabella (fretless basses)
  • Eating: eating and drinking more healthily
  • Drinking: pure water

My definition of a photograph is a result of the emotional reaction to the scene in front of my camera. I love the abstraction from reality that monochrome affords me. To me there is no difference between a photograph and a panting, the former works in pixels the latter in brush strokes, both are a form of communication.

That bass in your ID pic is stunning!

thank you very much.  natural dew on a flower is a blessing and everything in nature is in abundance.  That flower seems to 'smile' broadly when the dew is upon it.
