CAN PHOTOGRAPHS BE EYE CANDY?

in photography •  11 months ago  (edited)

I did not have the time to post yesterday, as I did last week. I am going out of town Sunday and I am trying to get a lot of work done outdoors before we leave. Mostly, I am working on getting my garden planted. I was working on that today when a thunderstorm moved in. I thought it would be a good time to work on a post. Problem is I had too many photos that I wanted to share for a single post. Therefore, I will post one today and another tomorrow. Today I will focus on photographs taken at my place. Tomorrow I will post photographs from the Manito Park trip we took early last week. Hopefully, you will enjoy both posts.

I have been trying to get a decent photograph of one of my **African Violet** houseplants without a lot of success. Most came out okay, but after weeks of trying I think I found one that I believe is pretty nice:

IMG_2631-a.JPG

I have posted a Coleus plant before, but this one has three kinds in the same pot.

IMG_2655-a.JPG

This next one is a variation of a petunia that I used in an earlier post. The coloring is a little different:

IMG_2651-a.JPG

This next one I found growing wild in my pasture. It looks like a Coreopsis, which I have never grown on my current property.

IMG_2794-a.JPG

Next are a few vegetables that I grow. Due to our short growing season I grow some vegetables in containers. Some in greenhouses in containers or in the earth. This first couple of photos are of a greenhouse variety of cucumber I grow in containers. The first one you can see I have a shelf at the back of the greenhouse and then train the vines to grow across the ceiling. To the right I have a few tomato plants in pots to get earlier fruit. I have to place all these in trays to hold water or in the heat of the sun they dry out too quickly.

Next are some containers I grow greens hydroponically. The first is Bok Choy and the second one is a type of Chinese Cabbage:

IMG_2643-a.JPG

IMG_2646.JPG

I grow my main crop of tomatoes in a "hoop house" which is a type of greenhouse. I am able to grow directly in the earth with these. I still plant a row in my garden but due to cold nights they do not do quite as well, but I still get some. I also have deer that think my garden is a grocery store and they raid it every night.

IMG_2642.JPG

Speaking of deer, I had a young buck visit my water tank and salt lick during daylight so was able to get a nicer photograph from my game camera. He is still in velvet, which is a stage when their antlers are growing. I had some deer that did not look very healthy so I put a sulfur/salt block out for them. It is suppose to help keep tics off of them. The tics spread disease. I could not get any sulfur blocks last year and a number of the deer did not look well last Fall or this Spring. Now that they have it available to them, along with fresh water they are looking better.

This has turned out to be a mixture of photographs. I hope you enjoy the series of photographs. Stayed tuned for tomorrow because I have some nice flower photographs to share, along with some other photos from my visit to Manito Gardens last week.

Seeing as I will be out of town until late Wednesday, I my not get to reply to as many comments until I get back. Sometimes the Internet will work and I have the time then I will work at it before I get home.

As always I appreciate all the support for my posts. I always appreciate Resteeming of my work. As I have said in previous posts if someone wants to use one of my photos please ask, or in the least provide the credit to me. In the event you do use one you should indicate in your post you are using it with my permission, or one of the nasty bots will find an issue with it.

So, until tomorrow...

Photography is a way of putting distance between myself and the work which sometimes helps me to see more clearly what it is that I have made.

it's really awesome your photography i just love it sir ...
you are only one in this platform, just want to show your perfection of photography..
thank you .

Thank you very much

The plants get their common name "African violet" from their superficial resemblance to true violets (Viola, family Violaceae).

The genus is named after Baron Walter von Saint Paul-Illaire (1860–1940), the district commissioner of Tanga province who discovered the plant in Tanganyika (now Tanzania) in Africa in 1892 and sent seeds back to his father, an amateur botanist in Germany, and for the father.Two British plant enthusiasts, Sir John Kirk and the Reverend W.E. Taylor, had earlier collected and submitted specimens to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, in 1884 and 1887 respectively, but the quality of specimens was insufficient to permit scientific description at that time. The genus Saintpaulia, and original species S. ionantha, were scientifically described by H. Wendland in 1893.

Revisions of the genus by B.L. Burtt expanded the genus to approximately 20 species. Due to recent studies which showed most of the species to be very poorly differentiated, both genetically and morphologically, the number of species has been reduced to six, with the majority of former species reduced to subspecies under S. ionantha, in a recent floristic treatment.As of 2009, 9 species, 8 subspecies, and 2 varieties have been recognized.
Old name vs. current name

Right Sir...

Along with flowers, vegetable garden is very beautiful. Vegetable cucumbers of the garden have grown a lot and after some days. Cucumbers will be suitable for eating. It was very good sir photographyIMG_2638.JPG

Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.

A flower’s appeal is in its contradictions — so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect.

·

Thank you. I like to mix things up. My garden is mostly planted so eventually i will have more gardening photos. But there will still be flowers

Awesome! very beautiful all plants and flowers photographs, petunia have a lovely bright color. I curious to know how you managed and takecare of your green house.

·

Thank you very much. This year I am behind schedule with my greenhouses due to all that took place a couple of months ago. My tomatoes in the hoop house are easy using soaker hoses to keep watered. I just have to keep the weeds down before they get out of hand. The other greenhouse is small but in the heat the water needs checking a couple times per day. All of it including the container gardening and my regular garden take a lot of work, but I find ways like soaker hoses for watering saves me time and water. I set timers so I do not underwater. I find it very relaxing, so I just let me mind flow when I am at it.

·
·

well, that's awesome, I'm impressed. Gardening this is one of the best amazing work in this world. Luv it.

i really like the flowers that friend @r2cornell show.

Thank you very much. I am happy you enjoyed.
