Calla lily

Calla lily

In November 2007, I had the chance to go to Baguio.  I thought it was the most opportune time to break in my brand new camera bought by wifey from her trip to the U.S.  With a brand new Olympus E-510 in tow,  I did a solo photo walk within Brgy. Pacdal.

I was just starting to shoot when it rained that afternoon. So I ended up waiting in one of the souvenir stores in Wright Park, which were already closing.  I waited and waited until the rain became drizzles. I decided to walk further and ended up in Baguio Botanical Garden.  It was getting dark but I was unfazed.  Unfamiliar with the camera functions and settings appropriate for the weather, I ended up using "P" mode.  What the heck!  I did not want my trip go to waste. Besides, I was just a beginner then.  [Smile!].

I was in a botanical garden, ergo, I looked for flowers to shoot.  The water drops would make it perfect for flowers.  This calla lily was one of the many.

I converted this into black and white, adjusted levels and lowered the curves to make a heavy dark background, sharpened it to bring out the water drops.

That photo walk was certainly a walk to remember.
