09/24/09 - Octopus
Well, not really. It's really just a bunch of Halloween colors. But, the bubbles toward the outer edge of the picture kindof remind me of an octopus.
The rain finally stopped, and we even saw the sun yesterday:-) Reading some off the flooding story yesterday, though, was just heart wrenching.
I was out taking a few outside pictures yesterday and nabbed a neat spider web, but I just feel like I needed some bold color today instead.
RE yesterday's POTD: The wax myrtle grows naturally in NC, but is often planted as a landscape plant around public buildings. With all those berries, it's a great self starter carried from yard to yard by birds. I have one in the front yard, and I didn't plant it!
Late Note: If you aren't familiar with the glass shots I often post to the dailies, let me explain. This is glass beads (orange, green, and purple) in a small salad size bowl that has a star pattern at the bottom with some bubbles toward the outer edge. I shoot in macro mode from under the bowl looking up. There's a light source pointing down on the beads. In this case, it was an incandescent light bulb. Sometimes I go out and use natural sunlight, but it's been raining. Sometimes I use sugar or glass chips or other things for the color. Some of the glass is cut, frosted, textured, whatever looks neat.
Have a great day...
