Spring is here, last week, (when Spring wasn’t quite here, I guess) I took the big camera to Tulsa’s Linnaeus Gardens and took a few pics. I loved these flowers in the planter. The flowers seem a little overpowered by the mass of the rocks in the planter and the ultra heavy duty lattice above it but with the flowers, with the bright colors, overcame that mass. At least that is what I think. I used Topaz’s Glow to bring out the grain of the wood and the texture of the rock.

Another photograph I took last week at the Linnaeus Demonstration Garden at Tulsa’s Woodward Park. I amped it up a little bit with Topaz Labs Glow filter. The flowers are pretty but what I really like in this image are the veins in the leaves to the left.

I found myself with some time last Saturday after I dropped the kid off at his Improv class so I went up to Tulsa’s Linnaeus Teaching Gardens and strolled around taking pictures. I am trying to learn how to do bokeh where the subject is in focus and the background is out of focus. I found these yellow flowers (you want to know what kind they are, I told you, they are yellow flowers) and loved them. For today I ran them through Topaz Impressions and backed the filter off about a quarter.
There is something about the last days of summer that makes flowers that much more beautiful even though they may be a little faded.
