I actually caught the reflection of the other Irises in the raindrops that had formed along the edge of this flower. I made the main flower black & white in CS3 to bring out the reflections that otherwise blended in to the rest of the photo.
Remember those old 110 pocket Instamatic cameras...well if you do then you really are dating yourself. But seriously this was all I had way back then to "capture the moments" and it did the trick, graininess and all.
Dusty was the boss. I got this cat for my little sister for Christmas one year. He lived to a ripe old age as most ornery old farts usually do. The camera I had at the time was a 35mm Ricoh ...ahhh I loved that camera.... till my ex stole it from me.
I sometimes wonder what my life would be like now if I stayed in Cancun back in 1992 and not moved back to Canada. I probably wouldn't know as much about computers or photography. Not that I really know a lot about either..... but I do have my BS degree in both (BS stands for 8ull$#!t BTW for my blond friends). I bet my Spanish would be much better though!
