Botany porn




(Tech note: Nikon D200, Micro-Nikkor 60mm F:2.8.)


Maybe I got too inside-jokey with the title there. I think it's usable, because it's enjoyment of pretty botany. But also it was a reference to a post from yesterday called Camera Porn. Closeups of cameras.

This blog is hard work. There was only one picture there this morning. Home many other updates did I miss?

Yes, I worry about that.
Sometimes I get a bit obsessive, sorry.

I wonder if I should put "update 3" and such in the title?

The Canon 5D post was updated maybe seven times.

I'm a bit disappointed in the title. I thought "porn" was a term used to describe sexual activity. The three colorful pictures look more like Botany VD, or something. Pretty, but not hardly what I consider porn.

Do I need to update my vocab?

No you were right. I often use the phrase "veggie porn" to describe beautiful vegetable photographs (aka Weston's peppers or cabbage.)

It's a common term...consider property porn, cookery porn...all common terms used freely in journalism nowadays.
