Carnation bud

Carnation bud

Carnation Dianthus carophyllus (sp?) bud in Albany, CA. Taken by a Nikkormat FT2 with a Micro-Nikkor 55mm ƒ3.5 non-AI lens on Kodak Portra 400NC. Print scanned into computer by an HP G4010, dust eliminated in Paint Shop Pro X2.

This bud is about 1 inch, top to bottom, in real size… this is about a 1:2 on the film plane shot! On my 17" screen, at 1152×864, this is about 4x life size!

Best viewed against black (keyboard shortcut "L"…)
