I am trying to grow some venus flytraps right now, since I absolutely love carnivorous plants. I bought a miniature greenhouse and decorated it appropriately, but so far the germination has been poor. Never mind, I spray them with water regularly to keep the humidity high. So one evening while I was doing this, I noticed that the droplets on the greenhouses’s walls with the setting sun hitting them looked quite photogenic. That’s my kind of greenhouse effect! C:
I sure hope the seeds will wake up soon. At least I know it’s not a question of lack of care.

I took some photography today, and since many people seem to be enjoying them I’m gonna give you a few to look at. The professional photographer who took my graduation photo, told me that you can use pantyhose or stay-ups as a softer for your camera. I still had the stay-ups I wore on graduation so I decided to give it a try. And I have to admit, it does make a nice effect. It rained last night so I got some pretty decent water droplet pictures too C:
I find it so amazing that such simple things like water, can look so beautiful.
These two pictures have been taken with the same settings almost at the same time (plus minus 5 seconds) but the first one was taken without the stay-up sock and the second one with it. The difference is surprisingly big, don’t you agree? The stay-up really smooths the color scheme up.
And using the stay-up can give a unifying, almost impersonal effect too. Again, the same settings and all, the first without the stay up, the second with it.
I think I’m going to use this trick in the future too C:
