Faceted Texture

I photographed some textured glass and decided to use it as the background for a few montage photographs. It seemed like a good idea, but I didn’t quite get the results I intended. The other photographs are from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.

American Beauty Berry. The texture hardly shows up at all.

Pineapple flower (probably not its real name). In real life it’s purple but I played around with the color a bit. I wish it had been more in focus.

I managed to capture the windmill in motion, using a slow shutter speed. That took several tries to adjust my camera settings.

Windmill, Accidentally

A windmill with purple, blue and lavender skies

I don’t remember it looking that way in person

This is an unaltered photo. Is the sky really that color? No, not even in stormy weather in central Texas. How did it happen? It happened because I was taking photos indoors at B&B Quilting & Gifts and, having just learned how to change the White Balance on my camera, I had it set to Incandescent. And forgot to change it back to Cloudy when I left the shop.

I saw the dark clouds and thought they made a nice contrast background for the windmill. The blue, white, and violet contrast nicely, don’t they? A happy accident.
