Earlier this summer I revisited a lot of my old flower photos, wondering what I could do to shake things up a bit. I ended up liking these three, to which I added a bit of a painterly effect and some toning to mute and somewhat blur the results.
So here I have a photo of what I believe are apple blossoms, then a waterlily photographed on Maui (thank you, Jan), and linaria (or toadflax), which is a lovely weed I had growing in our yard in Oregon.
Since I'm in Nova Scotia right now, perhaps photographing a flower as we speak, I prepped this post to appear while I am gone. Be forewarned. There will be more flowers appearing in a few days.
