June Blooms

(Rainy Day Rose)

The NaBloPoMo theme for June is “Now.”  It has interesting possibilities as far as photography goes but I suspect I would end up flailing about within a few days in the same way I did with the “haunted” theme last year.  So, no NaBloPoMo for me this month.  Just as well.  Summer looks like it may be a fairly busy time for us.

What I plan to do instead of NaBloPoMo is post some of the flower shots I’ve taken over the past month or two.  I feel like I’ve been saving them for a special occasion although the main reason I haven’t posted many of them has more to do with the “Look Up” theme than it does with hoarding or saving.  I did come up with a few ideas in which flowers could be applied to “Look Up” but decided not to pursue it since I had plenty of other fodder for the theme.

All three photos above are the same shot.  I took this photo of a rose at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens after it rained.  The first two have been altered in Photoshop.  The last is “almost as is” so to speak with the exception of a little tweak to sharpen it (which it might not have needed but I did it anyway).

To see more flowers and other garden photos, join me over at Bountiful Healing.  I have so many that I’m going to spread them between the two blogs.

    Lovely images of the rose. I am a huge fan of Photoshop, but the SOOC image is beautiful just as it is.
    I’m not doing NaBloPoMo at all this summer – too busy!!
