Just a little flower cluster.
For all my wonderful followers who enjoy my photographs and would like to view many more of my uploads, if you have an instagram account, you can follow my instagram account under curious_vogel
Though I cannot view photographs on the same grand scale as I can here at wordpress, I have been dealing with slow uploads and viewing here, and I am also dealing with frustrating issues of this site not responding to my likes when clicking on them. Though I am not abandoning my wordpress account, I am not signed on as often as I would like to be and if I am behind in liking all your great posts, I apologize as it is because of slow mobile viewing or these annoying technical issues of this site. I thank you all for your likes, comments, and support in any event though!

I love when you can’t seem to tell a photo from a painting, and vise versa! I was using my close up 10x magnifier lens attachment to focus on the center of this mallow flower and the extreme depth of field the magnifier created tended to blur out the flower petals and background to such a degree, that the end result appeared much more like an art painting than it did a photograph.

The strange and beautiful world of drops keeps me fascinated to no end.

More testing with my new lens.


Happy Friday and Easter weekend my followers!
Since you all seem to like this flower so much, I thought i’d give you another taste of the bush mallow. 🙂
I have just received my new PC today (since Microsoft had ended their support of Windows XP and older operating systems..ugh! ) so I can now play with GIMP editing software again and attach my old name tag logo. However, I do still think I much enjoy my tablet and the simple to use photo editor app.
