    A Caster Bean plant, just started this summer from a seed. These plants produce rather dangerous seeds, but they're rather cool looking in a scifi sort of way, I think.

    Taken with the Leica X1 f/9 @ 1/160 ISO 400

    I really liked how this plant glued in the light.

    Wonderful colors - and I'm pretty sure it is a Coleus plant: Coleus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia You can find images that look to be the same type as yours by searching Coleus. I don't normally know too many plants but some Coleus plants are grown indoors... I have memories of being in college apartments filled with them.:wink:

    Taken with a GF1 with Olympus OM 50mm f/3.5 Macro.

    All the trees were covered with mosses and lichens and stuff due to the humidity -- taken in the San Andreas watershed near San Andreas Lake (formed by the earthquake fault of the same name).

    As soon as I saw this photograph, the thought "It's alive!" came to mind. To be fair, that's a quote from "Frankenstein" when Dr. Frankenstein realizes the monster is truly alive! And even though we know that all plants are truly alive, there is something a bit unnerving to me when I look at this vine climbing up the wall... It's as though it's trying to break in through the duct work. Great color, Christian! I like this photo but it does give me a sort of eerie feeling.

    Bill, thanks for both of these. Your second one is quite a distillation - these stamens (?) look like a happy crowd of revelers, to me!

    I'm sorry that I haven't always been able to respond in words to everyone's photos. I know it's not required but if I can, I like to. I see that I had missed some earlier. My apologies.

    These threads that everyone can keep adding to are a great way to go.

    BB, these B & W LX5 shots are looking rather Leica-esque to me. What do you think?
