    Happy Birthday, Sara!
    They say, "Practice makes perfect," yet they also say, "Nobody's perfect". I don't get it.

    Happy Birthday again

    And what a coincidence. I was testing some stuff this morning and this is the result: a candle in a crackle glass holder, in front of a window with the reflection of the trees in the glass. I had some really great results. Here is one of them.

    Thank you Sara. I have started to experiment with the camera now. Different things I can imagine and see what comes out in the end. The observation of a certain thing happening, then I take it and push it further, set it up so there will be a goal involved, versus just taking a shot. I am very interested in texture, always have been, so I will go after that a little bit more now. It is amazing how just a mundane object can be turned into something quite spectacular. I enjoy these weekly forays a lot

    Thought this one melted with some nice, geometric swirls.

    Ha Warp, after it had burned down for a while, you lit this candle three times for a short while, that is why you got the circles

    This experiment came out pretty neat as well.
