Wonderfulicious Wednesday

A challenging week made better by transforming photos!
Date Palms are an abundant crop in the Coachella Valley: I don't know
what the HOA was thinking when they planted Date Palm trees
in front yards. These aren't taken care of properly, sadly. 
Right now the dates look more like olives. Of course I had
to run the image through a few Apps.

I haven't done any macro photos in awhile; the perfect
subject is a yellow
Hibiscus from the garden
And then both a yellow and
red hibiscus . . .

Palm tree Vignette before pruning. 
iColorama, Mextures, and Stackables were used.

One of the lessons in Susan Tuttle's course is Self-portraits.
I'm fond of the painterly effect of this one.

Sill-life study of three miniature roses not much
 larger than a quarter along with a
pewter goblet that was mom's. 

Womderfulicious Wednesday!

Great assortment of subjects and applications.Your hibiscus is so beautiful!
Funny, I have been using a drawing made into a sun print of date palm in my 'ancient garden' series.
Not a particularly good landscape choice but I do love seeing them in rows...majestic!
