Pink flowers in a garden in the trailer park near our house. I like the look of these flowers; they have a pink hue mixed with cool blue, unlike pink roses which are generally more warm. Of course this all depends on white balance and editing, but these flowers look good in cool colors while roses don’t.
“Cool” colors are bluish; “warm” colors are yellowish. This photo might be closer to neutral, but I pick warm colors over cool colors in most of my photos so it’s subjectively cool.
I have no idea what this flower is. I photographed it on one of my morning walks. It was by the road three feet into someone’s yard.
There’s no good way to search for the name of a flower with its picture. I tried searches on Google like “white flower pink fringe long petals florida” but I had no luck at all. You practically have to be a florist to identify flowers.
So I’m titling this “Not a Daisy.” I’m not going to bother asking random friends and family if they know the name of this flower.
Pink Flowers at Lowe’s, against a blue sky with contrails out-of-focus, sun shining down.
I debated the title for a few minutes and went with it even though the flowers don’t appear to be battling for the sun; they all have plenty of light. They’re quite tall though, which is a trait of plants in crowded areas. When a tree is surrounded by other trees, it will grow straight up to get sunlight, but a tree alone will branch out because it has plenty of light. Plants are semi-intelligent.
Unlike in Publix’s ads, tomatoes can be very ugly. I shot this at the local produce market and you can see spots all over them. Granted, I added contrast, color, and vignetting, but I didn’t bother editing out all the spots like the professionals do. Normally I’d call it laziness, but today I’m calling it realism. These are tomatoes without silicone… no, that has nothing to do with boobs.
This could be a tribute to the rock band Queen, but I decided the title on the spot without thinking of them. This cat seems regal. A leader with an overbearing sense of entitlement. Instead of running away like the other cats in our neighborhood do, she stood her ground. She stared my camera down as I took many pictures from different angles. It could be a male cat—I didn’t check—but I didn’t get that impression. This is a queen cat.
I darkened her pupils and brightened the whites of her eyes. She has interesting eyes. I made them better. Photographers do that.
Purple Morning Glory flowers at 8 A.M. By the afternoon these all fall off. The next day, they bloom again. Definitely an interesting flower.
Instead of doing a macro, I did a wide shot characteristic of a new photographer. Newbies never get close enough. However, I like this shot because no flower is special. There are just a whole lot of them, and the viewer is an equal distance from most of them. In photography, every rule can be broken.
