I like to change the look of my photos by applying different effects. Here is a group of tulips with a poster effect and a frame added. Looks a little like a painting.
Here is my version of purple. A simple purple iris.
When I don’t have anything of consequence to say, I think I will just let a photo speak. This is the Chicago skyline looking north from around 39th Street.
Are you ever at that point where you want to break out? But something is holding you back. Not sure what it is that’s keeping you from expressing yourself. Maybe, just maybe, you’re not quite ready. Like the little pink peony here. It’s opening ever so slowly. It’s not quite ready to display its full beauty. It needs just a little more time.
With all of this heat here in Chicago, one thinks back to more pleasant temperatures. Ah, the wish for spring because it means winter is over and summer will be coming. But in thinking about that, I remember how quickly the onset of spring disappears. You know, the budding trees, flowers just starting to poke through the soil and then it seems no sooner did it start than everything is in full bloom. We see it, but do we really stop and take notice. Well this little bird did cause me to pause and take notice .
