Just a quick post today, as we’re getting ready for a trip to New York and I spent two hours in the dentist’s chair again. Fun and games!
I shot this forsythia yesterday….
Thought it might look more interesting with some texture, so I used one from Flora Bella (soft light blending mode, 89% opacity):
“Forsythia is pure joy. There is not an ounce, not a glimmer of sadness or even knowledge in forsythia. Pure, undiluted, untouched joy.”

Hope your day is going well.
That textured effect is very cool. So nice to see yellow today.
Have a blast in NYC! I hope you’re going exclusively for fun!
Thank you! Family visit, but we tend to have fun. 🙂
I like this texturing effect, Miss Pearl! I hope your time in the dentist’s chair is complete!!! Have a great time in NY!!
Thanks so much! I only have to get the permanent crown in 2 wks., then I’m done. 🙂
They are both beautiful shots and I really enjoy the processing on the second but I think the original is my favorite! It is just lovely!
Thank you! I do love forsythia–it means spring really is coming, no matter how bad the winter was.
I love forysthia as well. I like the photo with the texture, looks like cobwebs.
The dentist again… Bah, too bad. I have never been to New York. Would really love to go one day.
It’s OK, just one more visit. Can’t believe how long the novocaine lasts!
Have fun in NY. So I guess the forsythia is what I have in my garden. I inherited it, but did not inherit an innate knowledge of plants so I’m trying to figure it all out.
Yes, it looks like forsythia, Jennie. You inherited some good stuff! I had to buy a book on gardening when I lived in Virginia, because I had never seen a lot of the plants before. Then I moved to California and had to learn a whole new type of plants. I even knew the Latin names, but they are escaping me rapidly.
I love the textured one! Learning how to use textures is next on my list 🙂
Bonnie, you can find some great, free tutorials on Kim Klassen’s website. She is amazing. Try this link:
