Plant light

Yes, it's a change of pace from what I usually post, but hey, why not? This is what happens when I look through my archive of photos-not-quite-good-enough-to-post-as-is. I noticed how much the flower looked like a lamp shade ... which triggered a search for a photo of a light bulb (at just the right angle, mind you) ... then firing up Photo Shop ... voila!

It makes sense. A lot of flowers start out as bulbs ...

It actually looks like the lightbulb belongs with the flower. A nice effect.

At first glance, my initial thought was, "that's a really nifty lamp!"

Then I read your text. Great work. I like the photo even better knowing you created it.

Neat idea, and nicely executed.
