Flor de pepino

Garden Art: Flor de pepino I’m always nagging on myself to go visit exotic places and see new things. In rebellion (I don’t like being nagged), and contrary to my own advice, I decided that what I really need to do is be present and see the beauty that’s in front of me—right here, right now. I’m going to work on a new series; Garden Art, and this is the first in the collection. It’s a cucumber flower in our backyard garden.

Transparency

This is my take on another photograph from my recent trip to the zoo. It was actually a moving light that shone on the concrete walkway to form what I believe is a rose, or some other type of flower. I used a paint effect to accentuate the lines a little. It’s not one of my favorites, but I thought it went really well with the Word of the Day challenge, the word being kinky; as in “having kinks or twists.”

Street Life

A Grandson’s Kisses are Like Tattoos on Your Heart. This was a fun shot today. My grandson and I noticed the cute little flower dangling near the ground on our way to the donut shop. He’s a pretty cooperative subject if his face doesn’t have to be in the photo. This was the first time I tried a color splash, so I was excited about that as well!

Morning Glory Surprise

This colorful flowering vine belongs to our neighbor, yet it sneaks into our yard, back behind a shed where no one dares to go. I had to crawl through a creepy web to get a good view, but it was worth it—and I was looking for adventure. Too much coffee perhaps. Anyway, I spruced it up and darkened the background to show off the colors—and then I did a Black & White for Rebecca.
