Needles by DafoeofLenin Needles by DafoeofLenin
This is a cactus that I bought today at work to add to my cactus collection.

As you can see I am a big fan of water droplets/dew and such...

Oooh :o Hedgehog cactus! Not sure what it's latin name is, just remember it's common name. But that is a good choice for lighting for it, lol, really brings out it's yellow coloring :D

An odd shot. But it's quite lovely... i like the lines and the droplets of water. I guess it's a great macro shot.

Hahaha, I feel your pain... you look outside and it's a choice between white... and dead brown plant sticking out of white. That and I don't live in a very scenic location. But yeah, get yourself a cactus! They're fun to take photos of:)

I don't know where you live, but "not a scenic location" sounds like it may be an urban location.

If so, all you need to do is change your mindset and you'll see lots of architectural perspectives?

Aye, I do live in the city... in all the other seasons there's a lot of parks where I can go to take photos, but in the winter all the cars make the snow really brown and disgusting. I've thought about doing architectural stuff... when I used to live in a dorm the building right next door to me was the coolest building ever. Here's a pic from the google of it [link] I should go back and photograph that, it's a really small art museum inside. But in the morning when the sun hit that thing it would bounce right into my room and blind me lol.

Woah! That IS the coolest building ever!

Looks like NooNoo on "Teletubbies" **OMG, i've really lost it now . . . :omg: **

Hahaha... Teletubbies. I'm sorry to say once you make a reference to that show it is an official sign that you have lost it. :lmao:

Man, now that I think about it... there are a lot of architectural things I could photograph... I can't believe I forgot about the cherry on the spoon! [link]

So many possibilities now..

Well, I had to sit through that crap when my Daughter was a toddler. I remember them better than she does.

It was bound to have an effect! :crazy:

That building does look like NooNoo, though . . . :rofl:

Just the macro setting that's in my camera... once I save up enough money I'll buy a better camera though:)
