In the Woods

I don’t know what these wildflowers are called, but I was attracted to their wild shagginess.

Seen on our 2018 Alaska trip.

Born to Be Wild

Until we moved to Arizona, I had never heard of Apache Plume- but now I photograph the seed heads every summer. We have a big shrub of this native plant in front of our house. I can’t say it is lovely to look at as a landscape element- but the craaaazzzy seed heads and little flowers are quite captivating!


Hello, Yellow!

A cheery sight at the Alaska Botanical Garden in Anchorage:

I love how the Lensbaby Velvet 56 produces a painterly image straight out of camera! I added a low opacity texture on the background- but that’s just because I can never leave well enough alone.

Good Morning!

Nothing like a cheery daffodil to start the day!


Pastel

A return to doing what I love- soft and dreamy flowers. For this one I used my Lensbaby Velvet 56, which I have never fully explored. When I joined my photo group, it seemed that there was such an emphasis on sharpness- that I started working on my landscape photography more and more- and I mostly left my lensbabies behind. It has been fun this week to once more embrace my love of BLUR!

Back to the blur. . .

The last few months, I’ve found myself missing blur and soft focus.  As a result, my Lensbaby Velvet 56 has been on my camera for the last week, and I’m going to put the Edge 80 (my fave!) on there next. Manual focus is always a challenge, but I find taking soft and dreamy photos is my comfort zone. I love the blur!

My beautiful Valentine’s Day tulips are fading, so I took the time to trim stems and take a few Lensbaby shots.
