Following breakfast on the portal, I looked down and noticed this interesting graphic possibility. I think it could serve well as a book cover or greeting card image with the lower right area a natural location for a title and/or other text.
I also like the contrast between the delicate flowers and the cracked concrete.
There's not a lot of summer left, here in Taos, so today, at lunch, as I was looking at the sunflowers in Thea's garden, I thought maybe I'd better get in another garden shot, while I had the chance,
Another bit of found still life from Thea's dressing table.
Don't know what they were, but we had two of these. One was completely destroyed by the elements, but this one Thea brought inside and saved. She added the roses and it now resides on a shelf with her jewelry.
Thea in her garden. 'Nuff said.
Here's a shot that needed very little in the way of processing. I cropped it, tweaked the ambience slider a bit, same with the details slider, in Snapseed. Then I played around with framing in Photogene, and it was ready to share.
The crows are part of a bird feeder / fountain that we haven't quite gotten operational, yet.
Of course, Thea's garden is fast becoming “operational” and beautiful!
Thea knows I'm partial to dried flowers, so she left these tulips on the office window sill. I made an almost found still life. I say almost, because I moved them slightly to include the dark space at the top.
Here's one from the archives, a still life I found while wandering the back streets of Pisac, Peru.
