A ladyslipper flower that I get to see once a year. This particular type is rare and found in few wooded areas around here. I know where there are a few great patches of them, but I’ll never tell. ;-)
Had a great bike ride today, brought the camera along just in case something came up worth shooting. When I saw these sprouts on the trees, I had an idea as to what I’d like the final photo to look like, though it would (and did) take a bit of post-processing to get the desired result.
I decided to try out a little project that was posted over on Photojojo this past weekend. It took a few tries to get the sizing correct for the cut, but it was overall pretty easy, and fun. The two photos above were done using black construction paper, just as a test, which worked out OK for a first run. I think I will work on a better set and use poster board or vinyl, something that will last a bit longer and be a bit more sturdy.
