Macro Monday

First, snow pellets on the driveway,

The base of a very small floral sculpture,

I liked this version, the color us very warm almost sepia, the only editing I did was to crop,

This is more natural color.

This little sculpture is formed out of enameled metal, hand crafted, soldered and colored, the whole thing is about 6 inches tall, if I recall this is a Gentian flower. It was given to me by an internet friend Joey Bonhage of New Orleans, he specialized in botanical reproductions, ran a gallery and studio in the Bourbon District. Joey survived Hurricane Katrina, but has since passed from emphysema, he was a special fellow, I treasure this little thing.
