Fire on Ice
I was playing with this in Photoshop to see if I could get the flower to "pop" more. Unfortunately, I'm one of those who plays with something to the point I hate it, but I'm curious do you think it "pops" more with the playing?
Rose and Friend
I must be getting old (as if I didn't know that)! I didn't even notice the little critter visiting this rose while taking it at the Botanic Garden.
Admiring the coleus in her garden
My wife spends a lot of time creating her fairy garden. It provides a great way to test my new lens.
Safe in Mother's Arm
Nora's mother still likes to hide Nora's pretty little face from me, but at least I finally got this one. If I get lucky I may even get one with the eyes open someday.
Nap Time for Nora (and mommy, too)
Nora, the baby gorilla born in November at Brookfield still spends her time with Mom, even when napping.
I was going through some old pictures and stumbled across this one. I felt it was still okay and thought it would be fun to share.
Rising to the Light
While I admire the fortitude of those of you outside taking photographs, I find this weather far more suitable for getting my photography fix in green houses, This one was at Botanic Garden.
With the approach of Valentines Day and the current weather forecast, I thought it was time to look at something warm and fuzzy. This was taken at the Botanic Garden last August when my grandsons came from California for a visit.
Pretty in Pink
Too cold to be outside? Try the green houses at the Botanic Garden. This one is the results of experimenting with stacking.
