Working With Succulents

It’s been eons since I’ve written anything here. I could pretend that it is all Covid-19’s fault but, truth be told, I’ve simply been unable to think about anything to write. I think my brain is on vacation, even if I’m not able to go on one! (In addition my husband is an amazing writer and it’s obvious I don’t have that talent.) But I will force myself to write — perhaps once a week I will attempt to put a little something here so I’m not only posting Goodnight Flowers.

So here goes …

I absolutely adore making images of succulents because I have become so fond of the plants. I doubt I’ll ever tire of them! They are so varied, have such wonderful lines, and the colors … well … that remains a fun challenge! Was it really as blue as I am seeing on the screen? Did the green come out correctly? Sometimes I have to go back several times to verify that, indeed, it was that color! (I had to, in fact, move the slider a bit to the right to make this image below less blue, as it just seemed wrong to me. I hope I’ve gotten it right now.) Color is quite an interesting thing: I once took several images of the same flower, all within second of each other, but due to the light changing the color of the flower was vastly different in each photo.) And how much do I want to show? Some of the images I’ve posted here are merely an inch of a plant, if not less. Some are (as with this one) a wee bit more than an inch.
