I like travelling to discover new images, but sometimes they are close at hand, staring you plainly in the face. The place where I write, edit photos and interact with the world is next to my window ledge which is populated with geraniums.
It’s late November and the wild, cold autumn weather is taking hold. Some of the bright red blooms of the summer are holding their own and show no sign of dying. One morning as I sat here, they were dappled with rainwater and spurred me to pick up my camera.
I decided to treat the shot above with a blue filter, which made the droplets stand out and even catches the London grime caught in the petals. But for the purists there is a full colour photograph below.
Which do you prefer?…
