Hollyhocks In January






















Click on photo to enlarge

After seeing Sonia's gorgeous scanned flower images at her Leaves Of Grass blog I had to try this myself.

Not too bad for a first attempt I think, but wait until you see hers, with fresh flowers, and the ones Sonia was inspired by, from Katinka Matson.

Mine needs full enlargment to be appreciated at all, and I will be doing more of this!

That's a pretty neat effect, and as eye-catching as the fresh flowers are on the other site, the dried stems have a sober beauty.

I find this to be an extraordinarily beautiful image. Just lovely. I can't wait to see more.

After not using our scanner for months, we just put it away on a shelf in the closet last week. I think we will be getting it out again. Thanks for sharing!
