A dandy of a dive

Flowers have always been one of my favorite things to take pictures of. Therefor they have been the subject of many of my edits. When I discovered the macro setting on my camera I became fascinated with dandelions.
Here I was going for a collage type thing with some of my favorite flower pictures at the time

Just one of many dandelion pictures I've taken. 


For some unknown reason I thought it would be funny to give it a face. I learned how to turn a face in to a cartoon. Then I distorted it a little and blended in to the dandelion. 
I think I'm very happy that I have moved on from this kind of thing. Or have I?

The new header is fun too.

The collage should be left just as it is and made real big in a frame and hung up. It really is stunning. I adore taking flower pictures and miss them so much in the winter. The dandelion face is too cute!!! I guess that's what a lot of us will look like when we've gone to seed!

I love macro shots of flowers - you get to see details that you never notice with just a passing glance...

Sandee said...

I love them all but the last one made me laugh out loud. Were you having wine when you did that one? Just wondering.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)
