I’m not sure if this is crazy, however…

…after years of talking about edging

a garden bed we call  the orchard


…finally talk came to fruition back in August/September.


This past weekend…

…I captured a few images for this forum and

for my pictorial records.


Due to my limited photoshop skills some

of these images appear washed out.

While lightening shadows

I lost highlight clarity.



I  don’t expect this bed to be completed before Easter.

The final touch will be mulching; if I can locate

a suitable much that will not blow away.


Meanwhile, Petunias brighten the bed until soil settles

over the summer months.


Weekly Prompt Photo Challenge:…Covid-Crazy





Every now and again I take my camera out

and shoot without really checking settings.

A similar problem occurs if I move from

a bright to dull setting.

The consequences are reversed if moving

from a dull to bright setting.

This Straight Out Of Camera (SOOC) image

on a foggy morning was far too dull for me.

A fiddle in Photoshop and I had two acceptable

and a bit different versions.

Same image, inverted colours.

I like both images but I think I am on my own.

Another form of editing I like

is cropping.

Image 2707 has too many distractions

and again a tad dull.


Image 2708 is much better with

the onboard flash operating…



Image 2708 (again) and the pick of the crop.

Again I used Picasa to crop and create

a macro style image.
