Softer petals

A few posts back I promised a different treatment of the petals.  I played around with some of the artistic brushes in Photoshop and settled on this image.  I may fiddle around with it some more.  Somehow flipping the image and softening it with a watercolor brush gives it a more abstract feel to me.  Would love to know what you think.

Out for a morning swim

This was taken on a recent morning near the Lincoln Memorial.  I generally am not a huge fan of sunrise/sunset shots with lots of glowing sky, but there's nothing quite like being at the Lincoln Memorial at sunrise.  The dawn of a new day from the steps of a place dedicated to a man who inspired a new day in America is truly one of the special things about DC.

Yes...I'm a bit of a blogging kick.  This was taken back in 2011 at the U.S. Botanical Garden.  I forget what kind of tree this is - some sort of cedar.  I was really struck by how bright organge the needles were.  Follow me on twitter @brundagephotos

A few petals

I was sorting through some old shots and came across this shot from 2010.  I think I'll spend some time playing with cropping it and try for something a little more abstract in the next posting.
