Calla Lilly


I occasionally take photographs of things not associated with Liverpool, or trains. I have been known to try out flowers as subjects, this is one of them. A bit of black card as a background and one of the rare occasions I have used a tripod.

It is nice to try different things, isn't it? This works very well - red on black is always good. I have just done some red flowers on a black background for a college project - maybe I'll post them in a bit.
