Self portrait?

130924 Beauty

This week’s rainy weather has prevented any sort of outdoor photography so I decided to look through my archives for a candidate for this week’s Texture Tuesday submission. I don’t know the name of this flower, but I like its exuberant “take-me-as-I-am-even-when-I’m having-a-bad-hairday” demeanor. In fact there are days when I might consider this a self portrait of sorts ;-)!

The image was processed with two layers of Kim’s Naturally texture. The first layer, positioned directly above the photo is set to Multiply at 50% opacity. The second layer, positioned at the top of the layer stack and set to Divide at 50% opacity, lightens the overall image and brings out the handwriting and postmark characteristics of the texture. Fonts: Century Gothic and Swenson.

  1. Ah, your words made me smile – I like thinking of this as a stand-in selfie 🙂 We have certainly all had those prickly days. Great use of negative space to highlight that wonderful spiky pink. Are you sure you aren’t a secret graphic designer? Love your use of text.

    Wanda, You always pick such wonderful subjects for your picture study. But your words were so so important in this weeks selection, It will be difficult to look at a flower in the future, and not wonder what it’s “demeanor” is. Thank you. Take care, Bill
