Journey of a body on this earth

Happy Valentine’s Day!


It seems spring is upon California right now with high 70’s predicted for today.  We need more rain but I’m going to enjoy this weather today and soak up some sun on our deck.  I’m still battling this cold although it’s slowly getting better thank goodness!

Yesterday I took a picture of this tulip and thought I’d share it with you.   I used a softbox cube which can be purchased fairly cheaply on Amazon which can be seen here, a piece of black lacquer plastic to place the tulip on, and a black background which came with the softbox.  I then turned on all the lights in the kitchen and used a small light that came with the cube and placed it on the outside of the cube to give a little bit more light.  I thought I might have to use a flash but then realized this ended up being just the right amount of light.

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

  1. Very nice photo, you are awesome! I find that sunlight makes the cold or flu go away faster. Not sure why but when the sun bakes the chest it feels nice and seems to force the bad stuff away. Must be the vitamin D…

  2. A very welcome sight, we currently have snow falling outside and feel very far away from Spring! Thanks for the info on your shooting set up 🙂
