A Study in Scarlet

Okay, so technically the colour here isn’t scarlet, but I couldn’t resist using the title of the first Sherlock Holmes story 🙂

Kim’s co-workers threw a baby shower for her a few weeks ago and gave her this rose, as well as a tonne of books and other gifts for Malcolm. Very sweet of them.

Anyhow, one afternoon when the weather was miserable, I started playing around with the camera and the light. I don’t normally photograph flowers, but it can be a fun challenge.

I took a number of shots in the kitchen before moving the rose near the window in the dining rom, where I used a spray bottle to create water droplets.
