Photo Feature Friday No. 5

Hello all!  Well, I'm glad to see that Blogger is finally back up.  My last post is gone...out into the ether somewhere...hopefully to return soon.  I wasn't sure if I should even put up Photo Feature Friday at this point, but here it is anyway.  If you recall, today's photo theme was Spring.  If you have something other than Spring, you're welcome to share that too.


You may have noticed that I love to include flowers in my photos...well, today is no exception.  I got these the other day when I bought the ranunculus.  They're called stock.  They kind of remind me of delphiniums or something of that nature.


Aren't they beautiful?  They seem so old-fashioned.  I love them with the crate and the burlap...that's my favorite photo of the bunch.


When I processed my photos I just made a few adjustments in curves in Photoshop Elements, which was the first time I tried that, and I also used the Cosmopolitan action from Flora Bella.




Well, are you ready for a photo show and tell?
I can't wait to see your beautiful photography!

Things to note:

• Extra hugs to you if you mention photography in your post •
• Please include a link to the party or the party's button in your post •
• Go out, mingle and leave a few comments for others •

If you want more party specifics or need to know how to link up, you can look here. Please link your post, not the main page of your blog. I've noticed that some people are doing this. If you need to know how to link to your post please click the link above.

Next week's suggested theme or challenge is: White

Have a good weekend ♥ Tricia

  2. You see a lot of stock in traditional English flower borders. These are beautiful, I love the first shot but my favorite has to be the second photo, it looks like a picture on an olde worlde English calendar, just beautiful!

  3. Beautiful photos! I think I might wait a while longer to post, since my previous post also disappeared. Supposedly Blogger is restoring all the posts they "removed"....but they also said 7 hours ago that they would have that done "before long." I don't know what to believe anymore. I just know that I'm having withdrawals! But I do have my "spring" photo ready in the wings.

  40. Hey sweetpea,

    What was blogger like, eh? Sooooo annoying. Grrrr. I'm glad it's all better now - and actually I think it's not a bad thing to be reminded every now and then that life still carries on just fine without the internet working properly!!

    Gorgeous photos, as always!!
