I am calling this one “parfaitement équilibré naturellement”
I used to grow orchids. I had up to 75 plants at the height of it… So I am drawn to them wherever they are.
This one is a grocery store blossom.
The title in English = Perfectly Balanced Naturally!
Captured with my #GooglepixelXL and processed using #Snapseed app. I did very little to this image, except crop and frame it. Those colors are genuine and spectacular!
Almost 8 years ago, I closed up my Manchester, NH portrait studio / digital art gallery. Renting out my house I put all my belongings in storage, moved into my Winnebago RV and drove myself out to California.
When I got there, I was in a bit of a personal funk so I put down my DSLR. It wasn’t but a few short weeks when I realized it wasn’t that I didn’t want to take pictures anymore it’s just that I needed a break from being a commercially marketed photographer.
I had an iPhone at the time. So I just decided to use what I had and continue to take pictures. Believe it or not, in short order, I connected some dots. I knew I loved making images, and I knew I loved having my portrait studio, and I knew I loved editing and making beautiful digital imagery.
What was new for me at the time was my understanding of the true ability of my smartphone camera and post-processing apps available to me. Fast forward 8 years and here we are today. Sharing incredible digital art with the world and each other in an environment of cooperation, each to lift the others up as we create!
I truly recall a moment in my photo retail life, in the early 80s when 99% of the photographers I served refused to by a digital camera or have anything to do with digital anything!
