What better to post with christmas around the corner but a photograph of the “Christmas Rose” (Genus: Helleborus). Hellebores flower during the coldest months of the year and are not related to the rose.
Reprocessed from a very old photograph (2006)
I have this thing about taking pictures of clothesline pegs! They seem to come in a myriad of colours, shapes and textures. In other words they are ideal for experimenting with photography… Take the example below.
Simulated HDR processing of a single photograph in Photomatix Pro.
The lambanana is the creation of Japanese artist Taro Chiezo. While the original statue of the lambanana was only 4 inches tall, a gigantic 17 foot bright yellow version was installed in Liverpool. The statue is a cross between a lamb and banana and recognises the dangers of genetic engineering as well as pays homage to Liverpool’s role as a major trading port for lamb and fruits such as the banana.
Photographed at the Museum of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK with a Panasonic TZ30 compact camera. Processed in Adobe Lightroom 5.2.
I managed to get three quick shots in quick succession to be able to process this photo as a HDR. At the fossil rim wildlife centre in Glen Rose, Texas.
Photographed on one of my usual lunch time walks. The teasel (Dipsacus) has dry spiny inflorescence head that make lovely additions to floral arrangements!
