Project 365 – Day Three Hundred and Seventeen – Plan B

day 317

This evening I had what I thought was a really cool plan for a photo in my head. It required the use of some flash. Sadly both sets of batteries I have for my flash guns decided they needed recharging just as I’d got the lighting right.

I’ll have to save that one for another time, but meanwhile a “Plan B” was required, and quickly! Scouting around the kitchen I discovered a jar of star anise and thought I might be able to do something with it.

What a delicious aniseed / liquorice smell this stuff has. I think the odour might have been intensified by sitting under a couple of hot desk lamps for a few minutes while I shot them.

    • Thank you Simone. It really was a last minute “what the heck can I shoot instead” kind of a thing :^) They’re an interesting looking spice, and the aroma in my little “den” was wonderful – I am a liquorice fan :^)
