i had a STILL blog image all ready to go tonight. it was getting dark and i had photographed a pretty beautiful golden colored fern, laid out more or less flat, but with some parts of the frond overlapping in a way that looked like kissing. i finished post-processing half a dozen images and then happened to go back into my bedroom where i had taken fhte photos, and suddenly, in the process of their dying, the ferns were full of life and personality, curling and cascading toward the ground so fast that i could almost watch the process unfold. it was clear a second photo shoot was called for, and this image is the delightfully unexpected result.
