Now is there silence through the summer woods, in whose green depths and lawny solitudes the light is dreaming. ~Edward Dowden, In July
We've reached that point at our house where our shady, summer yard is an endless sea of green, green, green. There's hardly any color...although my blogger friend Bone recently reminded me that green is indeed a color! lol. (You must read Bone's blog - I am a huge fan. His charming, hilarious, self-effacing writing will draw you in immediately.) And he's right - how could I forget how beautiful and serene green can be? So I went out with my camera and I really looked around...I found some beautiful things, mostly green, but beautiful just the same. The cool greens are a soothing sight when out amidst the stifling heat and humidity. The first photo is my submission for Kim's Texture Tuesday - we had to share an image with the theme "natural". My hydrangea is as natural as it gets...I used Kim's "I Am" texture at Soft Light/27%. The remaining photos are texture free, although I put all of them in my beloved Radlab and used filters to tweak them till I liked how they looked. And I should clarify that the moth was actually on my kitchen window glass - it wasn't flying midair when I took the photo! It sure looks like it, doesn't it?
