Chihuly with a hint of Christmas! (Friday Flowers)

These flowers were outside in the gardens of the Chihuly Glass and Garden exhibition in Seattle. It was the end of the day, the sun was setting and people were not wanting to stop whilst I took my happy snaps.

Consequently I wasn’t particularly happy with any of my photos. That was until I transferred one to my phone. Oh the joy of photo editing apps… they breathe new life into anything!

 

 

 

 

 

Oh to break the glass flower ceiling (Friday Flowers)

It may not have happened at the end of last year as many of us had hoped and dreamed, but it will happen… eventually.

That glass ceiling will be broken by women and equality will finally rain down upon females everywhere… eventually!

Flashy Fake Flowers (Friday Flowers)

For something different this month, rather than editing photos of my fresh flowers, I’m going to be using flowers from the Chihuly Glass and Garden exhibition we visited in Seattle at the beginning of the year.

Chihuly’s glass is magnificent without editing. However, in this instance I couldn’t help myself by upping both the contrast and color just a smidge!🤣

A Sign of the Setting Sun (Monochrome Monday)

Walking up Pike Street for an early dinner before our short flight from Seattle to Vancouver, the setting sun behind the market’s sign caught my eye.

Although shooting into the sun is never advised, in this instance I simply couldn’t resist and am so glad I did.
