For many of us, it's Friday, the last day of the work week. Allow me to remind you that in the Northern Hemisphere, change is upon us.
Go outside and enjoy the remnants of Summer. Start to notice the subtle changes of Autumn
My attempt to display flowers you've never seen before...
Sometimes, I'm lazy and do not take the time to jot down the name of a flower...
This one was new for me - I must've been impressed as I did take the time to discover it's name...
Abutilon or Flowering Maple is good for attracting bees
I'll leave you with this more fall colored image.
In most of these images, I reduced the overall sharpness by using a Glamour Glow filter that also warms the images slightly. As they were handheld, no deep depth of field is present and I wanted to make them feel more impressionistic as opposed to technically crisp. I do appreciate the technically crisp images as well, but don't discount images if they're not looking like a prisma colored illustration.
Ironically, I went the the Denver Botanical Gardens just before going to photograph a derelict property on the other side of town. It's always a mystery as to who will be squatting there, the amount of new dumping and trash and if there's new graffiti or broken windows. This time, only one older gent laying down in the shade reading a book. He didn't seem concerned that I was there with a camera.
be well, Conrad ( @timelapse )
