The Lady Has Class


"The Lady Has Class"

A few days ago I was walking down my driveway and a Rose of Sharon was  
growing right next to the house by the downspout. I probably should pull it out
so it doesn't get too much bigger and ruin the foundation. But in the meantime I took
a few pictures with my camera phone because I was in a hurry to go someplace and
I didn't have time to get my camera. That's the story of my life, always in a hurry. 
So today I downloaded the files to my computer and they were surprisingly
quite good. I have tons of captures of these Rose of Sharons which are in the
Hibiscus family by the way, because they are growing all over my yard. I was in
a very creative zone so I started playing and stylizing and somehow this emerged. 
I really like it and I think would make a great photo transfer for a totebag or tapestry.
Or perhaps on just the right black material it would make an awesome cocktail dress.
Only my imagination knows for sure where she will end up...

flowers make amazing subjects and your mind seems to work the same as mine about your work, one idea spawning another. Ha. I have a couple of flower photos I took, manipulated them color wise to fit my decor color choice, had them blown up and put on canvas, they make a great pop of color for the walls. this hibiscus would be perfect for that.

Thanks for visiting Linda! Yes it sounds our minds work the same way... I would like to see your flowers. Do you have them online somewhere?

A beautiful photo. Flowers are special for their beauty and fragrance.
