Bamboo E.R.

So awhile back I got a new batch of Lucky Bamboo from IKEA. I managed to pot them into a lovely clear vase and set them on the dining room windowsill. A couple nights later the outside air was really cool for once so Rene decided to leave the windows open for the night. (we tend to leave the blinds shut because I’m paranoid about weirdos looking in) Sometime in the middle of the night I hear a loud bang! I automatcially think it’s the front door being flung open. So I go and check, but everything’s fine.

Queue later in the morning and I’m walking to the bathroom to shower. I look over and to my horror I notice my Lucky Bamboo vase had completely toppled over onto the floor! Soil and rocks everywhere! My poor LB had snapped in parts and it was overall a sad scene. 😦

About a week after the incident I decided I should put them back into soil but I have no more separate pots to put them in. And since some of them weren’t the same anymore, I decided I was not going reuse the nice vase. (which thankfully didn’t break! I’ll find another use for it) I ended up having to do some surgery on them in hopes of them recovering from the trauma. I went ahead and collected our Starbucks cups (I’m addicted, it’s horrible) and use them. Now they’re sitting on the windowsill here in my "art room."

I was bored this afternoon so I decided to put my recent Ikea visit to good use. The vase, rocks, and bamboo are all from Ikea. The backdrop is a cutting board also found at Ikea.

I don’t have a calibrated monitor, so I have no idea what this picture really looks like. I basically took it straight out of the camera. I’ll re-prep it as soon as I have access to a good monitor

Taken with a diffused Sigma 530 DG Super at 1/128 fired upwards behind the backdrop. Sunlight from the blinds lit the front.
