Red Chairs

My latest excuse for not having updated this blog in ages is that I've been sick for the past week. Visual Field caught it from me after I became ill but somehow he managed to bounce back from it after two days, whereas I still haven't completely recovered. LuminousLens suggested that stress may be making things worse for me. She may be right, but I can't imagine what might be stressing me out right now...except, say, the fact that I'm supposed to be finishing up my Ph.D. in the next few months. Oh yeah, that might be it.

So, for a number of different reasons, I haven't had my mind on photography much lately, but in the interest of keeping the blog going, I'll dig into the old stuff for a while until I get back on my feet. I took this photo in the basement of Levering Hall at JHU back in January.

Crown

A softer presentation of yesterday's subject. This is more of a typical flower shot, but I just like how it makes me feel. Gerber daisies are becoming one of my favorite flowers. There's just something so cheery about them. I like how they seem simple and unpretentious. Plus, I'm grateful because this batch of them brought me out of my recent no-photography slump.

Gerber Daisies

I haven't taken photos since my trip to FL. I can't figure out why, but I just haven't been in the mood for photography lately. But yesterday, VF got me some gerber daisies, and I just couldn't resist taking the camera off the shelf. For this shot, I put the vase of flowers on top of a large sheet of white paper by the window to catch some bright late morning light.

Greetings from Sarasota, FL. I'm here for 6 days at a conference on Vision Science, where we're enjoying really nice weather and white sandy beaches.
