Assorted plants form the lovely little garden on Greenwich Street and 6th Avenue. I included a reworked Trillium from Central Park. The first three have replaced backgrounds.
One image reworked and tinted from this Spring and the other is odd view 4tthrough a lamp. Both in Manhattan NY.
I haven’t been to Central Park in quite a while. We went there on Saturday, September 4 for a morning walk. It was so nice to see so many of my birding friends there. There wasn’t a large number of birds, but the few I found where nice ones. The best was a humming bird and a Bay-breasted Warbler.
I spent a few hours today adding new backgrounds to these in Photoshop.
Lotuses and Lilies
4 of 6 of the New York Botanical Gardens. I like the sculptural form of the lily seed pods. Each one is slightly different. I replaced most of the backgrounds and enhanced my photographs in Photoshop.
I just learned the difference between a lotus and a lily:
- Lotuses belong to the family Nelumbonaceae. The leaves and flowers of a lotus rise above the water’s surface.
- Water lilies belong to the family Nymphaeaceae. The leaves and flowers of a water lily float on the water surface. The leaves of a tropical water lily float on the water surface, but its flowers are about 6-8 inches above the water surface.
I made a night version of my photograph of Geysir in Photoshop for fun.
