Visions of dancing sugarplums by Celeste Mookherjee

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

I photographed some fuchsias this morning on my way in to my local botanical garden, but no one will ever see them due to failure of my memory card — that despite the fact that I reformat my cards only in my camera, and I buy cards only from manufacturers with good reputations. I continued shooting, but with a spare card. Just to be sure, I went back and photographed the fuchsias again on my way out of the garden, which is when I captured this dreamy vision (part of my project of experimenting at f/2). (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/2, 1/500 sec., ISO 200, overcast, handheld)

    So alive and so beautiful!!!!!! Love everything about…
    Sorry to hear about your memory card…
    Have a wonderful evening, Celeste!!!!

  • I’m so glad you like it! As for the memory card, it will be replaced under warranty. However, I’m nervous about the idea that a card can go bad and not warn you.

    Well, at least you returned home with this stunning and vivid image… this is just magnificent, Celeste, with such color! As for the memory card, that’s downright scary…. never had that happen and, here’s hoping, it just a one-off situation with a damaged card to begin with…..still lowers one’s confidence in those things, doesn’t it? Hope all is well with you and have a good week ahead.

  • Thanks, Katherine. The fuchsias are such wonderful subjects, and this turned out to be a good addition to my f/2 experiments. The card error IS scary, and this is the second time it has happened to me (two different card manufacturers). One of my Flickr contacts suggested a file recovery program to try (the card manufacturer’s own recovery program found nothing from this shoot). I’m thrilled tonight that the lost files are all recovered and now safely stored on my hard drive!
