Bracteantha

This is a neat little flower that is commonly called the “straw flower.” It looks and feels like paper, and even after it is long-dead, the bloom retains its shape and most of its color, much like dried straw.

I work for a wholesale floriculture grower in NC, and a while back I took my camera to the greenhouses and had some fun! I’ll be posting various pictures from the greenhouses over the next little while. I’ll try to be posting more frequently.

Fisheye’d Cat

Sorry for my lack of activity on this blog. I’ve been busy with a new job, and I just haven’t been around enough for my camera 😥 I am preparing a series of photos for the coming week, though! This week, fisheye’d stuff!

End of the Line

The Stratosphere has a couple of “rides” on top of the tower. In this one, people ride in a rollercoaster-type car that stops at the end of that rail–and then plunges towards the ground. Two pictures this time! (Tech notes: I really don’t like the noise level in these; that’s a problem that I’m finding with this camera. At ISO 800 and 1600, there really shouldn’t be this much noise. I might try some noise tests with a RAW later.)
