All that’s left of my hydrangeas. Trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear as they say. . .

Dahlias from the Farmer’s Market!
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.
another shot of just the flowers from last week’s still life
Fireweed had just begun its bloom when we were in Alaska. I used a slow shutter speed with my iPhone to create this impressionist style image.
A multiple exposure edited two ways. I like the black and white best. 🙂
Sometimes the view from below is best
A multiple exposure flower abstract for Tuesday!
We have been having extremely windy days recently! In fact, it was so windy that I couldn’t photograph flowers outside- so I propped this one in the window to get the best light I could. With the addition of three textures, I’m happy with the resulting image.
My favorite kind of flower edit- soft and dreamy
It is finally Spring here in Prescott. The trees have leaves, our birds are building nests, flowers are in bloom, and cottonwood fluff is floating in the sky like snowflakes- playing havoc with everyone’s allergies. Our irises are blooming, but getting a satisfactory shot has been challenging. I tried several times and finally settled on this composition. I took the image into Topaz Studio and ended up with a look that is not even close to my original image- but I like it better.
Another orchid image today!
I can remember a time when orchids were considered exotic- and I only saw them in corsages, which I thought were pretty ugly. Now you can buy them at the grocery store, although I’m sure many species ARE exotic and are only available from specialty nurseries. I like them now, although I still think they look like they have mean faces.
