An artichoke flower (a fully grown artichoke, BTW) in my garden in Albany, CA. Taken by a Nikon N75 with a Nikkor 28-80mm ƒ3.3-5.6 G lens on Fujicolor Superia 400. Negative scanned into computer by an HP G4010. Dust removal, color and gamma correction done in Paint Shop Pro Photo X2.
Judging by angles and DOF, this is likely taken at a focal length of 28-35mm. Taken from a range of about 2 feet.
