Indigo hoops

George has decided to be my assistant  supervisor, and seems always to be around during photography sessions. While I'm making things, she's very understanding of the creative process and takes a paws-off approach, often sitting behind me on the chair (uncomfortable, perhaps, but clearly neccessary).  She does like to have some input in the photos, though - and while Chess will sometimes watch from a distance, George clearly feels that composition (and sometimes lighting) is her forte.

A discovery ... at least, I think I might have discovered it! An interesting, freestyle "cane" with lots of potential. Spirogyra cane - how-to to follow.

The pattern of broken cells immediately reminded me of botany class in school ... looking through the lens of a 1930s microscope at plant cells. 

I tried a few different versions and they all turned out with the same unpredictable, organic look.
