Castor Bean taken with Micro-Nikkor 55mm f3.5.  Printed out on Ilford fiber warmtone paper.
Castor bean taken with Canon Powershot Pro-1.  This plant is in a park near where I walk on my lunch hour.  I find it most interesting in the Winter.

Really beautiful images. I love looking through this blog, as it feels almost like looking through a microscope, as weird as that might sound. Reminds me of looking at the slides of cells, and their patterns, colors, textures, tones etc. Its Very nice! I also appreciate the quotes you use, in your posts. I really liked one you wrote about Diane Arbus, I had never heard of her work before, but the pictures I found impressive, strange, and the quote you mention of hers, you were curious about the meaning, I found thought provoking.

I would be interested to hear what you think of this;

I'm interested because you're a photographer, and so you have an understanding of light, and how an image is produced, and I guess how an image is formed upon the retina, which you might have thought about deeply. Anyway, just curious.

Interesting link. I have to give it some thought. I wrote something similar here http://imtheomega.blogspot.com/2007/09/picture-is-secret-of-secret-diane-arbus.html

again using a quote from Diane Arbus but refering to a photograph as a sort of "fossil of the moment" a physical manifestation of a fraction of a second that continues to exist long after the moment has passed. This is something that draws me to photography especially traditional photography over digital because the way film and light and chemistry interact to create this link between present and past in a way that memory cannot. It's for me one of the most interesting elements of a photograph. Thanks for your comments and link.
