Just a little editing fun in Topaz Impression with an Alaska petunia. . .
One of the pleasures of visiting our Alaska family is seeing their amazing garden! There is a greenhouse full of seedlings, and next to it is a huge terraced vegetable garden. A deck surrounds the house, and the railings are decorated with flower boxes. In front there are more flower beds as well as rhubarb, strawberries and raspberries. And TREES of course!
This photo shows some of the petunias growing in a flower box on a front railing.
My little AAUW photo group is meeting this week, and the topic is reflections. Each month we send 4-6 photos to the leader, and then they are displayed on a large screen in a room at the library. Later they are on the website for AAUW Prescott. I got a few photos together for the topic, but also decided to do some still life photography emphasizing reflections.
Here’s one with my baby cup! I tried to shine it up, but ended up having to rely on the dining room table for the reflection.
All that’s left of my hydrangeas. Trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear as they say. . .

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.

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

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.
