An Innocuous Blog Featuring That Winged DinosaurSaturday, July 20, 2013
I have written about this rose a couple of times here and here.
This time around I tried something new. I cut a section of the rose which is growing so fast and nasty that I have to keep pruning it. It is encroaching to the winding path in my garden and you do not want to run into its nasty barbs. I inserted the section into my scanner and closed the lid. I never use this on my rose blooms as the flowers would be squashed. Besides when I scan these roses I scan from the bottom as if the roses were documents. By closing the lid I told the scanner that I had inserted a transparency. I played with the levels of the resulting scan and I was amazed to see that indeed the light from the bottom of the scanner and the top had rendered the leaves and the barbs transparent. I find that this picture and relatively innocuous blog is a fine rest from all those bras! And this one too.
