Orange Hibiscus Glowing

Orange Hibiscus Glowing, originally uploaded by Thomas Tolkien.

The pot plant in full bloom. Now fully settled on a different window ledge, there are four more buds waiting to burst into a feast of floral fecundity. Can the record of four stamens on one flower be beaten?

Taken with my iPhone before iOS 5 and error 3200

Whitby from a bench, originally uploaded by Thomas Tolkien.

I took this in Whitby before the iOS5 and error 3200 fiasco. 13 attempts to upgrade to the new iCloud etc – and all unlucky. However, I have managed to find these tips to making the update happen and solve the error message. The 14th attempt worked… Here’s the solution:

1. Reboot your iPhone after you get the error.

2. Make sure all your apps are already updated.

3. Try again, and don’t give up, as Apple’s servers might be over loaded.

About to fly away

About to fly away, originally uploaded by Thomas Tolkien.

Via Flickr:
A lady bug about to fly away. I spotted it crawling over a set of sample art papers which arrived in the post that day. She didn’t think much of the 300 gsm canvas rag, but really seemed to like the eco friendly bamboo stock – a classy lustre affair coming in at 200 gsm. I had chance to get two shots off as she scurried to the edge before alighting to a plant border, never to be seen again.

One flap of my wings will change the world

Via Flickr:

Read my beak – no more butterflies! One flap of my wings will cause the end of the global economic crisis, a permanent improvement in British weather and the immediate introduction of Rondel Oro Semi Seco Cava into every Morrisons supermarket.

Sweet Williams

Sweet Williams, originally uploaded by Thomas Tolkien.

Dianthus barbatus

A macro shot using the D7000′s small flash limited by holding my hand over it. 60mm at around 2.8 to severely restrict the depth of field to the pastel stamen. I know the point of a good macro is to achieve edge to edge sharpness using tiny apertures, but I like fuzzy, swimming bokeh to frame the object, and throw it forward towards the viewer. Sweet Williams seem flavour of the month around here – I picked these up in a supermarket on my way back from work. The best part of the long out of county commute and daily grind.
