How to grow a light tree

It's alive!

Is it true that last Spring I planted a little light bulb in my plant pot and now it’s fully grown? The answer is…of course not. That would be magic. That would involve wizards living in my garden. Of course that is not the case. Sadly since they would make great gardening accessories.

This is a classic example of painting with light. What you have here is a camera on a tripod with the shutter set to ‘bulb’. The aperture was f11, ISO100. I used a remote control to release the shutter and close it after I had finished. As for the magic? That was nothing more than a torch. It’s not a perfect shot – you can still see the faint movement of my trousers to the left of the plant pot.
