The Bare Oddities, or should I say Square Necessities

I am not getting email on time. Sometimes, it take hours to get an email I sent from my iPhone to my computer — photographs, for example. Sometimes, mail I sent never gets where it was sent or shows up days late. I’m not sure who is the culprit — Charter or Google. It could be either. It could be both. It could be gremlins.

Orchids on a branch

This is my favorite to date. It’s not photoshopped except for being a little brighter. Mostly, all the drawings are unprocessed except for cropping and, as in this case, brightening. When I take the photographs, I have a bad habit of standing in my own light.

This is squared and it came out much better than I dared hope. It should be white, but I needed shading to give it “form.” So far, flowers seem to be what I do best.

  1. I have often wondered why the photographed paper is never white…


    • I think some is. There are options in the more expensive paper from quite dark (sepia more or less) to completely white. I haven’t been buying the best paper, but I have seen options for white, sepia, dark sepia, and occasionally, black. I’m not sure why the basic choice isn’t white, however. I’m sure someone knows the answer. Maybe Google knows?
