Creating Works of Art

Some people might not care for the artistic side of Photography and that's perfectly ok with me because actually I sometimes prefer some of my prints to not go through any editing.  Well maybe just a touch of sharpening but some pictures are just better left alone. However, I had to see what I could create with these two.  I’ve loved art for as long as I can remember.  I dabbled in Oil, Acrylic and Watercolors.  This to me is like taking a fairly blank canvas and adding to it until you love what you see.  Yes these pictures are more whimsical but every artist should be able to create the art that they care to create.  I have so many others to get to that it makes it hard to sleep.  It’s after midnight now so I better turn in. Wishing you all a wonderful Easter.

Spring has sprung!!!!!!

I love experimenting will my Macro lens.  I took this picture today and the overcast skies were perfect for beautiful and vibrant colors but it was so windy and so hard to get a really sharp picture.  However this little guy came out looking pretty dang good.  I love the little fur coat he’s sporting.  It's so amazing to see these pictures up close and personal and I think that’s why I love Macro photography so much.  To see all of the variations of color from each flower.  It’s like opening up Christmas presents when I upload my pictures and see what surprises I might have.  I took over 600 pictures today so I’m going to make a pot of coffee and edit until my little hearts content.   Edit Party!!!!
