Staff Note, as usual these days, is an old photo. It's been in this cropped version for a long time, but needed some cleaning up which I finally did today. I love calla lilies, especially these little ones as they unfurl. Once I clean up some other pix I have of this bloom I'll post them, too. With other sorts of flowers a slightly busy background is less of a problem, less distracting. But these have such clean, spare lines that any distraction around them is jangling, at least to my eye. So the pix I take of them almost always require more cleaning up in the Paint program than those of other blossoms. (And actually the bigger problem with cleaning pix has become the discrepancy between color on blogger, and color as it appears in all other programs I view a pic in. I had to re-do the painting out on this photo three times, and I can still see some faint residue of what I painted out, but only in the blogger view.)
