Funny, I decided on this shot of a gladiolus for this first blog post, rather than the sports shots that I love so much.  My dad grew glads, and now so do I.  They're glorious to photograph.  Maybe a little tricky.  This shot is the result of positioning a very long stem dozens of different ways and taking hundreds of different shots until I got it filling the frame the way I wanted.

 

I like looking at it.  I like to think my dad would too.
