Two photos taken in the front yard and developed in P/shop CS6 for this
Our electricity post just outside our front gate...with some "altered reality"
A pretty bush in full flower in a friend's garden.
~ altered reality ~
(Sorry its so small, if you can, zoom in 150% for details)
Here's the whole bush
A seedling that has lasted for many years growing in a gravel pathway - near the edge
of the path so it has escaped the yearly herbicide spray, and I think perhaps Dick
likes the cheerful little blooms in early spring.
Flossie doesn't look happy with me, I'm not getting the right message :)
An iris given to us many years ago, it has multiplied well and is always the
first to bloom. Some "altered reality" applied to this particular image & the petals
supply the abstract pattern.
Just freshly opening
Partly abstract & a lot of altered reality
An abstraction of a branch of the rose she-oak tree - seen here
...and the original colours
A young galah who sits in the tree waiting for me each morning to come and refill the seed dish.
The first of our 3 crab apples to burst into bloom
This is fairly obvious - something we all use daily.
