This morning I took my Nikon D5100 camera outside, with a 105mm macro lens, and took a few shots. Then I had some fun with them in Picasa, a free, online, photo storage program, and transformed them with special effects.
The beautiful reality
And the taking away of some color.
or the switching of color that focuses on the magical inner world of its center.
Another lovely reality
transformed into a drawing.
And finally the same zinnia... fresh out of the camera
And then... all zoomy in black and white.
