The Green Worm

This little dude got onto my lavender pot
and then couldn't seem to get off,
so he did about 20 loops around.

which reveals a mysterious world of algae below at

Somethin from Nothin

This picture was made to look like evening,
though it was shot in harsh midday sunlight.
I used a tungsten light setting to give the picture
a bluish evening color and to dull the background.
The sun at her back is a nice hairlight,
combined with an off shoe speedlite
with a fleshy filter to give Riya a natural finish.
