Fun With Photos

Okay, I'm desperate now that there are no flowers to take pictures, so I'm stalking the flowers section in my supermarket. Once in a while, I actually see something unique, like these flowers or plants below.

Original Picture

I saw this unique and strange looking flower/plant arranging among many different flowers. My first reaction was to take a picture despite the lighting in the store. Out of ten shots, I ended up with just three photos.

Two At a Time

I love all the orange and yellow chrysanthemum flowers that surrounded these strange looking branches. Instead of going for the mums, I aimed for these different flowers.

Double Headers

The original picture of the above photo showed two branches. I played around with this picture in photoshop, not that I don't have anything else to do, but this is my way to de-stressed.

One Lonesome Branch

I added the reflection effect to both photos above and chose purple color for my base. They turn out wonderfully, and I just have to share.

Have a great day!
