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.

I really love what texture can do to a photo, don’t you?

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…

During January and February  there were these Styrofoam snowflakes hanging on a tree outside the old elementary school here in town. It was really cute. Every time I walked down that way or drove past I thought about getting some pictures when the light was better. One day before they took them down I finally lucked out– it was neither rainy, nor cloudy, nor grey, and the sunlight was hitting them just right.  I snapped these photos with the thought that it would make some nice greeting cards for new years or Christmas next year. The pictures turned out pretty good, and I was able to edit the background , color most of them blue with a lovely feature called tungsten, and then using a long drawn out many layered process in paint.net I was able to change the Styrofoam texture and consistency–making the snowflakes  icy , translucent, and glowing .

Towards then end of this batch of photos  I came across a floral photo on Redbubble I thought was pretty phenomenal, and when I went to look at it closer the photographer in question listed “texture by skeletal mess” and her original photo shown along side it without the texture. The texture, applied in a semi transparent layer  made all the difference between an average good photo and something that really stood out as amazing.  I searched for and found Skeletal Mess on the internet, and while he offers a large number of  really good free textures and some tutorials on how to use them– I wanted  to create and use my own rather than borrowing the work of somebody else. I have had some fun finding things around the house with interesting abstract patterns and textures to get close up shots of.

I incorporated several of these textures into snowflake in blue #8, with some lovely results. Interestingly enough these particular textures are the result of my teenager’s interpretation of my instructions regarding how to clean the iron skillet. Apparently the part about putting a little water in the bottom and boiling it dry really meant to fill the pan up to the brim  and have fun standing there watching the steam clouds while allowing it to boil over and splash all over the stove too. lol. Anyway, either he did not scrub it good enough or there were some minerals in the water and it made this interesting white splotchy pattern along the sides in  addition to the patterns it left all over the stove by the time he was done. My kids were pretty incredulous when I started taking pictures of it. They kept saying, “Mom, why are you standing on top of the stove?!?” the answer of course is that when using my macro lens you have to be a little further away, and it was the only way to get the shots of the patterns on the stove top. I think they thought mom had finally gone loony.

On several of my walks out and about this summer, I spotted these California poppies growing at the edge of a gravel strewn parking lot. The gravel creates a nice texture in the background of these photos. Introducing a blue, purple, or brown graduated tint during the photo editing process produced a beautiful compliment to the orange color of these wildflowers. I love how it also gives a bit of a moonlit or twilight feel to these images.

These photos are of a bouquet of red  roses, tiny light pink wildflowers, and ferns that came from my back yard. They were then placed in a vase in the afternoon sunlight with a dark blue tablecloth draped behind them.

Last month I went in my back yard and clipped a bunch of roses and gathered some wildflowers from my garden, with the intent of taking them to my friend R. T. for her birthday. And just to be clear, seeing as I have more than 1 friend locally with those initials, Rhonda, these are for you. I managed to get a photo shoot in, but life  with 2 kids in diapers got in the way of getting out the door with them before they wilted 😦

The sun was streaming brightly through the kitchen window, creating beautiful highlights and shadows so I placed the bouquet in a vase on the counter after draping a dark blue table cloth over the cupboard door behind it.

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.

Old-fashioned pale pink roses grow wild in the grass on the banks of Fox Creek, near where it flows into the Columbia River in the background. A cloudy blue Oregon sky creates a beautiful backdrop to these sunlit blossoms fluttering gently in the spring breeze.

On the way home from a trip to the park with my kids on Memorial day I spied these pretty old-fashioned Roses. They 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. I love how the sky lends an almost tropical or day-at-the-beach atmosphere to these photos.

On Memorial day when I took the kids for a walk down to the local park to play, I got these beautiful pictures of a bird in a bush. It took a while to figure out where exactly the tweeting was coming from, and then some patient bird stalking to get close enough to get these, but they turned out lovely. Although it was fairly easy to learn that the bird was a white crested sparrow, it took more searching than usual to discover that the bush with its clusters of blue blossoms is a blue blossom Ceanothus Thyrsiflorus bush which is native to California.

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.

Superimposed with many semi transparent layers of abstract shapes, this red tulip seems to be floating in a nebula.

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.
