Re: Series Inspired by Ernst - The Garlic Patch

For Everything There Is A Season Including garlic. It has now finished its bloom and toppled. The leaves are yellow and wilted. So from what I am reading it is time to harvest.

Breakfast At The Creek

Caught this dragonfly munching on some greenery above the creek bed, which is almost dry now. It sometimes fills 20 acres, but sometimes is calm enough to be a dragonfly cafe.

IPad edit, so feel free to suggest improvements but “real” edits will wait till I’m home...

Re: Bow

Beautiful (model and image). I love the casual feel of the shot, and the genuine joy in her expression. The clarify in the eyes is pretty grand. And the bow detail is definitely worth naming the photo for it. But my favorite part is the mouth, an almost giggle, with those adorable baby teeth still i...

Re: 'Light Keeper' (composite)

This is a simple composite I put together a couple of months ago. It was in my archives forgotten about until I accidentally came across it once again. The lighthouse, taken in 2007, is Asylum Point Lighthouse located in Winnebago County, Wisconsin. The sailor was taken in 2015 at Fisherman's Wharf...

Re: Minne's NEW 2019 52

On certain nights a small cafe is open and serves catfish. So, there are a few more vehicles than usual on those nights. I took a picture of that. W...

Re: The Grand Canyon

Bright Angel Canyon --Bob Lovely shot Bob. The clouds are an amazing as yours typically are, with all the delicious details. The scene itself has a bit of an illusion built into it, whether you meant it that way or not. There is an initial impression, to me at least, that I'm looking at and beneath...

Re: Minne's NEW 2019 52

I wish my memory was so good... I like your use of color on those last two shots, particularly the girl's red shirt - works really well with the greens and window framing. Glad to see ya, Piet, and thanks for looking. Hope you'll check out the Onion Moon thread and play along with one of your own c...

C’mon, Duck, take the challenge! Make a Duck-Original out of flotsam and jetsam you grab up around that scary studio.

Sure, why not. I'll take a look around and see what comes together.
Looking forward to seeing what inventive thing you come up with!
