One of the  things I really enjoy about going to Trojan pond are all the old-fashioned roses along the paths and under the edges of the forest. Here are some photos of them Io took during early July of last year.

This old-fashioned pink rose, with it’s glowing, golden center, stands out from a dark and shadowy background. The texture overlayed throughout this photo creates a combined effect of sparkling sunlight and an aged elegant vintage feel.

The textures and editing really make this photo pop. I love the color and glow, and it was really fun to do.

For those of you who are interested, my process in editing these often involves over 20 layers and blending modes to get the desired effect, but it is well worth the time and effort…

This is the very last batch of pictures I took in May, really it is 😉

On the way home from the park I saw these flowers in a planter box in front of a local hair salon. I really liked how they matched the paint on the building. All the warm tones were pretty in the glow of the afternoon sun. I’m not sure what kind of flowers these are… possibly they are some sort of mum. It would probably be easier to tell if the blooms had been opened.

Yellow and orange blossoms, growing in a planter box in front of a yellow and orange building, almost form a circlet as they bask dreamily in the sun–awaiting another day to open and bloom. Flowers near the periphery appear semi transparent and ghost-like almost as a reminder of past hopes and dreams.

Here is the third and last installment of pictures I took on the way home from the park on Memorial Day.  I’m so glad I saw these little hidden treasures peeking out from amidst the grasses along the banks of Fox Creek. Having the lighting be so wonderful that day was an added bonus. Hopefully you will enjoy them too.

Here is another installment of pictures I took on the way home from a trip to the park with my kids on Memorial Day. These pretty old-fashioned Roses were hiding so well in the grass along Fox Creek where it joins the Columbia River that I almost missed seeing them. Several of these have a nice view of the sky and the Columbia River in the background, lending them an almost tropical or day-at-the-beach atmosphere.

Back in may when I was editing my tulip photos I decided to do experimenting with one of them in paint.net just to see what some of the different photo editing tools did and to learn to do some new things. It’s been long enough ago now that I don’t remember all the different steps I used to create these one of the tools I used on this first one was layer properties. Opening multiple copies of the same photo and then choosing different levels of transparency and blending modes. I think I even used a polar inversion, which did some interesting things to the background on one layer.

Then when I started getting this ready to post here I decided that the tulip needed to be moved higher in the picture to create a better composition. this was done by flipping another copy of the picture upside down , and then blending the edges together, as well as making a few other changes, and then cropping it. It looks even more beautiful now.

My kids however, thought it looked “weird” to have the tulip under the semi transparent layers, so I made this one, just for them, by adding multiple gradient layers of the tulip on top as well as adding a swirl beneath–and then doing the usual final retouches.

The other day when I needed to go to the post office, the sun was out and the weather was warm–perfect for a brisk walk; so, I grabbed my camera and headed out on foot to get some photos and some exercise on the way. When I got to the old elementary school I stopped to take pictures of the tulips there because the plants growing around them made such an interesting background. It looked similar in leaf shape and color to the dusky broad leaved red eucalyptus that is available at most craft stores for use in floral arrangements, only it also had large spiny thorns and little yellow flowers. After searching around on the internet a bit I think it might be a variety of red Japanese Barberry.

A red tulip stands out in vibrant, living color against a dark background of thorny japanese barberry. Muted green foliage creates the impression of expressively energetic painted lines, as one bare thorny branch hangs down in front of the flower.

In this macro photo of a delicate yellow cluster tiny japanese barberry flowers nestled in the midst of dusky red foliage (resembling the red eucalyptus that are often used in floral arrangements) a gray stem of sharp thorns grows upward against the dark background.

This week I have been creating some stationery out of my stargazer lily photographs.

The soft focus in the photo on this stationery of a vase of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies glowing brilliantly in the afternoon sun conveys a feeling of old-fashioned romance and memories full of love and joy.

Softly focused photograph of a vase of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies glowing gloriously radiant in the afternoon sun. These beautiful blooms stand out gorgeously against the dark background.

This stationery features a focused black and white photo of an arrangement of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies overlaid with a semi transparent writing area. One unopened bud stands tall above the rest which bloom radiantly in an ethereal glow of afternoon sunlight.

A bouquet of stargazer lilies glows in the afternoon sun, with translucent petals and leaves, while the background disappears into the shadows in this softly focused photograph.

A bit of lens flare and a soft focus lend an ethereal effect to this photo of a bouquet of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies shining radiantly in the afternoon sunlight. set on a dark pink background and overlaid with a semi-transparent writing area, this photo makes an elegant writing paper.

Photo of an arrangement of pink and white stargazer lilies glowing radiantly in the sunlight. the soft focus and dark background make one flower stand out dramatically above the rest.

This stationery features a macro photograph of a pink and white stargazer lily on a black background. The stamen and pistol of this gorgeous flower rise upward as the petals unfurl in the radiant sunlight.

More stargazer stationery coming next week…
