  2. I take it the “Self-indulgence” category you indicated refers to the not-true-to-life color.

    • And I can’t resist asking whether you used pinking shears to cut out the true color.

      • Haha you are endlessly clever. 😊 I used infrared…

        • Do you have a camera that’s been converted to infrared?

          • Oh no—sorry for my brevity: it was an infrared filter I used in NIKEfex.

    • Haha—yep! I love dandelions—their structures and transformations. But I am not particularly fond of their yellow gold color. So I thought it would be interesting to see them as another color of my own making.

      • I’ll grant you that dandelions have a fascinating structure. Because my focus is native plants I don’t photograph dandelions, but I’ve learned that there are native species that produce similar seed heads. One that grows in my neighborhood is called silverpuff:

        If I ever get back to Europe I’ll make a point of photographing dandelions in their native territory.
