Variations On A Vase Of Glads

SUNDAY – DAY 195: A day of rest and relaxation before the return of soggy summer sameness!

DSCF0500   The other day I posted this photo of two tall stems of gladioli that I cut because they were top-heavy in the front garden. Well, today another stem was bending over and I had to add it to my vase. I also had my  camera out so I shot a few more pictures.

DSCF0511First the growing bouquet in the vase.


Then a highly backlit shot that turns the photo into a silk print.


And finally an enlarged print that gives the flowers a somewhat water-color look.

It’s amazing what you can do with a digital camera, iPhoto applications, a vase of gladioli and a Sunday afternoon with nothing to do.
