Flowerageous

orange flower

Red is passion-lit, orange is flowerageous, yellow is suntastic, pink is lipsensual, green is lifebursting, blue is skyful, purple is berrydancing, gray is cloudrainy. ~Terri Guillemets

For this week's Texture Tuesday, Kim asked us to feature an image centered around "orange" and to use one of her textures (I used "vintage", at Soft Light/22%). I must confess, orange is not a color I'm normally drawn to. I don't have anything orange in my house (except for the fruit, in juice form...lol) and nothing orange in my closet. So I hope you'll forgive me going back to my archives and finding this photo of a gorgeous flower I took while in Hilton Head a few months back. (I still have so many vacation photos I never processed!) This prompt gave me a wonderful opportunity to finally edit this "flowerageous" image.

Thanks for stopping by - I apologize in advance if my posts are a bit sparse over the next several weeks. I'm taking an online Lightroom class (also by Kim) and it's taking up most of my spare time. Lightroom is a whole new world for me, and my head is spinning as I try to take it all in. Kim's Round Trip class is awesome and I highly recommend it! It's packed with information and I look forward to finally figuring out how it works so I can use it daily with all my photos. Do any of you use Lightroom? Its possibilities look magical...

  10. I have lots of orange in my house, probably because I love earth tones. I would it is probably more rust colored than bright orange. Love your flower.
