Walking Wonder by Cillana
Walking Wonder
This tropical iris species propagates in an unusual way. The flowers bend over and touch the ground and a new plant grows where the flower was. It appears to walk across the ground hence it's common name.

Species: Walking Iris (Neomarica gracilis)
Date: April 29, 2007
Camera: Olympus C-765UZ
Location: Baytown, Texas

I got the idea from other deviants especially WaitingForTheWorms to do some flowers with black backgrounds. I stuck a sheet of black paper behind it and snapped away. I did a little editing in Print Shop Pro to get rid of the texture of the paper. This is how it looked before I edited it: www.deviantart.com/deviation/5… .

It's gotten too hot to take photos. Anyway the birds and flowers have disappeared with the heat as well. They don't like it either. I have plenty of previously taken photos to go through, but I just got tired of it. I got some new business cards and I'm trying to see if I can sell my prints at a couple local nature clubs with a percent donation to the club. Haven't heard back yet on the first one. Other one is on break until September.

So back to making jewelry! I got some new tools and books. I'm trying some new techniques. Hopefully I'll get some photos up soon.

I'm also spending my time researching some vintage items (so far costume jewelry) left behind by my grandmother when she passed last year. I'm planning to sell them on Etsy.

I've also been volunteering at the local library and reading lots and lots. I challenged myself to read 52 books in 2013 for the Goodreads reading challenge. I'm doing well so far. Been reading a lot of Jim Butcher, Jonathan Kellerman, and Naomi Novik.
  • Mood: Lazy
  • Reading: When the Bough Breaks by Jonathan Kellerman
  • Eating: Nachos
