I shouldn't be posting today because I'm swamped with work again and can't go visiting, but I prepared this image for the Kim Klassen Beyond Layers assignment, Textured Flowers, and can't let it just sit on my hard drive, right?

Nienoord is een landgoed in Leek, dat vooral bekend is van de voormalige borg Nienoord (historische naam 't Huis de Nyenoort), op de plek waarvan zich nu een 19e eeuws landhuis bevindt. Verder zijn het Nationaal Rijtuigmuseum, het Zwemkasteel, een camping en het Familiepark Nienoord op het landgoed gevestigd. In de geschiedenis behoorde de borg bij het dorp Midwolde, maar tegenwoordig wordt het meer gezien als onderdeel van het dorp Leek.

I would like to thank contacts and visitors to my Photostream for your time and comments over the recent weeks. I shall be off on a short 'Jolly' for a couple of weeks and so may not be able to visit your photos as often as I would like, depending on internet access.

Allium ampeloprasum var. porrum - The plant this flower came from was started from cuttings from Leeks bought at a market. The cuttings were rooted inside then planted outside in a flower garden. Green, straight, flat leaves were located at the base of the plant stem. The Allium flower bud head formed on a long stem. This flower bud head was knocked over by wind during a rain storm. If the buds flowered they would've formed a large, pale lavender, very attractive flower ball. After that, the top will die down, and many seeds will develop from the flower heads.

To see the Leek flower head from a distance follow the link below:

Just kidding.....

I was preparing the meal and when I cut the leek it looked like a head with hair. So I cut nose and mouth, drew the eyes and took a picture..........

Loosely based on a tutorial in Practical Photography, June 2013 (UK magazine) using two off-camera flashes and a container of water. There were lots of mis-timed shots before I got this one! I'll try again with some other objects when I have time.

I'm bored as you can tell.....
