    Little bit bored today whilst waiting for some workmen to arrive, so as my daughter got given some flowers by an admirer I thought I'd take a quick snap of them. So here's cliché shot number two.

    I really like it Vic - the detail in the flower makes a great image, and I like the treatment as well.

    I agree, very, very nice. Quiet commercial too I would have thought.

    It is indeed! Shot in Berlin and it is actually a shiny sculpture with shadow of a friend reaching towards it. Looks at bit better as a 16"x12" print mind! It's small 'cos I copied it from here (http://www.babelsberg-studio.com/bw1/) as I didn't have the scans to hand hence the small size. Uncanny resemblance though don't you think?

    thats a neat shot, I like it. Great simple B&W that says/asks a lot. A I bet it makes a great print. Unlike mine which is very twee!

    The funny thing about the shot is that I finally got round to printing it about a year after I shot it and when I put the strip on the lightbox I thought "What on earth is that?!". It wasn't until I looked at the shots either side that it dawned on me. It was taken near the Sony Centre at Potsdamer Platz a few years ago.

    Just what other little gems do you have tucked away?

    i did a rose picture like this ... and in fact one of only 2 painting i have attempted is in the same vein ...
    its an attractive thing to look at i think ...
    it might be a little clichéd but these things happen for a reason ... (excuding "zen stones" as i call it which is the worst interior decoration cliche known to man)

    Ah, but don't forget that old proverb though, "People who live in glass houses never throw Zen Stones". It's the ones outside!!
