Sunday Stills Challenges – #White

Believe it or not, this Crown Vic used to be pristine white!

It’s no secret that butterflies are my great love, so of course I have a white one to share!

I have a lot of white flowers I could share, but here are just a few I’d like to submit for Sunday Stills challenge.

No treatment of the color white would be complete without some of the stuff Winter brings!

Let’s hear it for humanity’s best friend!


The belief that all events are predetermined and therefore inevitable. So what’s your take? Am I being fatalistic?

Fun with Hue

FOTD 7bFOTD 8bI would never submit these images to Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge (aka FOTD.) I do enjoy toying with the “hue” of many of the flowers that I photograph using Photoshop Elements. Blossoms that have a colored center and white petals are especially alluring. Sometimes I’ll go in and do wacky things to individual petals using the “magic wand,” and other tools. In a lot of ways, it’s like creating your own personal alternate reality. I hope that you enjoy my vision.Sexy Susan.jpgThis was at first just a run of the mill daisy. Now each petal competes with the next for attention and they all compete with the center! (Please excuse all the technical jargon.)
