Hot Ice

Word of caution, if you ever decide to freeze one such small fruit instead of  #frozenflowers : Even frozen, it remains as hot on your tongue as the sunlight by f/1.8 on your camera sensor!

Cold Offering

My exploration with  #frozenflowers  started by simply dipping a flower (or other vegetal) into a tray I had available, which I then placed it into the freezer. From there many routed opened, which I could have taken. One of such route is the pursuit of perfectly clear ice. But this is one I did not push very far, and I am still quite happy with the amount of bubbles in the ice.

I decided to explore and play with the shape of the ice blocks and the placement within, of the subject they hold. So here is the result of one more such experiment, with flowers that I froze in a small cylindrical  tupperware containers.

From a recent discussion with +Darla Hueske on how difficult it is to shoot cylinders and spheres because of the "slippery focus" nature of the shape, I decided to move backwards and take a more global view at my subject.
