REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Saving for the Creative Exchange

I took this photo more than a week ago and added texture last week, just to post it for Lisa's Creative Exchange.  Lisa sets the tone each week with an amazing photo, very often a fabulous macro image that makes me wonder how in the world she did it!  The center of a tulip is "on stage" for this week's "exchange."  

This blossom was at a local nursery where my husband and I had just picked up two beautiful red wood dogwood shrubs to plant.  I assume this is some kind of bush or shrub rose, fully "blown."   The texture is Gold Dust from Bonnie's Pixel Dust Photo Art, and her "recipe" for adding the texture.

Evelyn, this is one of my favorite flowers, and yours is just beautiful. How truly kind you were in saving it for me!!! I just stopped by Bonnie's blog, and it is just wonderful. Her textures are amazing, and I truly appreciate you sharing the link here.

The work you did on this is just beautiful, but each time I come here I say that!! :-)

Thanks so much for sharing this at The Creative Exchange today.

Have a wonderful day!

What a beautiful capture, and your processing with the texture is perfect. Thanks so much for sharing with all of us the link to the site where you found it. I just visited it, and the blog is wonderful...another wonderful one like Kim’s. It is such fun experimenting with textures...a new experience each time I begin working with a photo.
