A Funny Thing Happened

© FD - Red Square

  About a week ago, I did some experimenting and created this image of the red leaf that I titled Red Square. I submitted it to Backyard Photography, and it was selected as a feature for the coming week.
  If you notice, a similar image was selected as a feature in this group last week.  A different perspective and a different dynamic.  I am pleased that this new perspective was accepted for it's different pose.

Red Leaf a Favorite Again

Backyard Photography selected my image, Red On Brick, as a feature image for the coming week.
It's nice to see that they are keeping the autumn theme going, to show all the beautiful fall images.  Soon we will be trending into winter and snow scenes.  I like the autumn ones for now.

Beautiful Bouquets

My image, Aroma Therapy, was selected as a Top Ten Finalist in the Fabulous Flowers Group, Beautiful Bouquets ChallengeAroma Therapy, seen in the top row left, was runner-up with 10 votes in the Challenge. It is, of course, one of my very favorite images of my lovely Heirloom Roses blooming last year.  Sadly, they were destroyed by our terrible winter's snows last year. Their replacements have not fared too well, but with ample protection, should take hold much better this winter.

Roses Do Grown On You

The manager of Roses Grow On You wrote that she had been waiting for quite a while to include my image Contemplation in a Features group with similar roses. Finally, today her wish came together in an extremely elegant features collection. I am honored that she included my image in the mix - it is really a lovely group selection.

Missed Opportunity and Reward

© FD - Red Leaf

Well.  In the process of researching one particular image,  I came across this Feature for my Red Leaf image that occurred about 10 months ago. I never knew it happened. In the spirit of Autumn and the upcoming Fall Festivities, I was planning to use this image, and several others, to make an Autumn Collage.  What a surprise on this rather gloomy and wet morning here.  It was such a beautiful Autumn day when this image was taken last year at the Warren Walk About.

End of The Month Feature

A favorite of mine, Digital Orange, was selected as a feature image in Gorgeous Flower Cards, for this week.  Digital Orange, is on the top row, second from the right.  The entire feature group is so pretty and very well chosen and designed.  The colors all blend so well.  Happy to be included.

Little Blue Dragon

Shapes and Patterns  just posted the feature artist names and image for the week. It was quite a surprise that my Little Blue Dragon and I were selected as a feature.

 I found this poor dragon fly on the floor of our deck lying on some icy slushy remains of a light and unexpected snow.  When I came back an hour later it was gone, so perhaps the slush provided it with some water and it flew on.

TUILIPS October Avatar Challenge Finalists

My  favorite Tulip image Vintage Parrot Tulip was selected as a finalist in this Challenge that concluded this afternoon. Next to Roses, Tulips enthrall me, so it is always nice to be included among so many beautiful Tulip images.  Vintage Parrot  is on the top row, middle in the pale antique pink mode.  The gorgeous image with the hummingbird is my favorite.
