It's been a poor year for my daylily plants. I think the cool weather we had in May (cooler on average than in April) suppressed their urge to create blooms. But these two showed up this morning.

There was tango dancing alongside the river last night. While I was circling, a woman arrived and slipped on her dancing shoes...

What is that? It looks suspiciously like a grinding burr, but one doesn't usually glue them together...

It's hot glass being worked at sea on MV Solstice somewhere in the South Pacific :-)

Basically, the orange bit it hot glass that is being wound onto an existing large piece of glass that has glass rods melted onto it around the side.  These rods are multi coloured and once the item is blown and spun it all creates a particular pattern.

Attached is close to it being finished (unprocessed record shot only - the "standing" shadow reflection in the middle of the piece is me taking the shot with the 70-200).  We bought it at auction on the ship (along with another piece) to raise money for scholarships for more gaffers to get training.  The Corning Museum Hot Glass show on the ships is amazing!

Yeah, I sympathise with her; I'm quite clumsy too... was she badly hurt?

Positioning yourself is key in this image, no?

I'm beginning to understand your fascination with mannequins now, Rob. It perhaps is a representation of yourself being frozen in time...

Another shot from the tango by the river... this woman appeared to have mastered her shoes.

But not her bra' straps! I won't think any more deeply than that, but she does look a little self-satisfied.

Must be the tango. Not Paris, I presume?

No, still down in the provinces. There is something charming about an under-employed bra strap...

There is something entirely charming about the garment. Period. Well a pretty one, that is; you know, amour not armour.

I once had a trophy one pinned to my bedroom wall. Had a party one night, and it got stolen. No, not the wall. You really shouldn't tust your "friends" when you're a teenager, especially when they get drunk. I soon stopped having parties. I used to be a quick learner. Didn't need books for that.

More from the provinces, evening by the river, young men under the bridge.

Well not exactly, but similar in that my only real photographic high is working with beautiful girls, of which I ended up doing quite a lot.

In fact, I'm currently working on a project that seeks to explain - at least to myself - what happens when your life changes and the former securities no longer are available; it really does leave you out on some sort of deserted isle where hope exists in counting the coconuts.

I suppose some solace comes from the suspension of doubt when one is working on the images and doing one's damndest to displace them from the mundane places that one finds them - if one gets lucky, then the illusion becomes strong enough to drive the camera outside to continue the hunt another day.

This is sort of an alternate version of the previous pic. Instead of trying multiple approaches with the same subject I often like to try the same approach with multiple subjects.  :)

Yet another version of the same approach, this time with Hosta blooms in my back garden.
