I was horrified on Friday. We went camping and I didn't have much time to take my daily picture what with getting there late in the evening and getting everything set up. When I finally had a minute to put towards it, I took an easy route. We weren't really camping...my family had all got a trailer in the middle of the woods...and there was a basket of fake flowers in one of the rooms. I decided that I'd try a simple isolation shot of some of the flowers. I aimed, focused, and clicked. The camera fired away, and then a big "NO CARD" message showed up! Argh! I forgot my memory card at home. I got pretty annoyed because I knew there would be many good photo opportunities on Saturday, and now I'd have to run back home in the morning to get my cards. Next morning I woke up and laughed at myself. Even though the memory card was at home, I had my whole camera bag with me and had about another 30 gigs of cards in the bag. ugh. So I grabbed one, loaded it and shot Friday's photo just as I would have on Friday.
I wanted a very minimalist approach to this isolated shot. The black and white definitely helps with that, it also makes these fake flowers look a little better. A little.
