Did not write much today . . . actually, did not add a single word to NaNoWriMo 2K15. My apologies to them who are waiting for more. It will come, but not today.
Before I get to the rose, this was the scene this morning looking out the bedroom window . . .
That don’t look too bad, I hear someone say . . .
By late morning, the snow had given way to sunshine . . . but someone still had to shovel 5+ inches of very wet, very heavy snow. That someone also did some chores and cleaned up my office. When he was done, I had no writing motivation in me.
However, the rose that appeared in a few posts ago (HERE) had opened up a little more. I took some photos with my Nikon rig, but also snapped a few with the Samsung Note II.
I did not notice it at the time, but I failed to lock in good focus with the Samsung. It’s normally tack-on, so I’m guessing a combination of being too close and poor lighting. Here’s what the photo looks like after processing in Snapseed.
It has a not-bad dreamy-like feel, but really, that’s just poor focus. I played with it while still in Snapseed . . .
Still not to my liking. I kept at it and finally settled on this processing . . .
Why choose this particular processing? As Everett said, “It’s a fool that looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.“
Mind you, Everett was someone not up on their anatomy; got to look above the shoulders for logic, and even then it rarely makes an appearance.
Anyway, when I took it to Pixlr Express, I tried a few variations.
I liked this as my first effort:
I quickly wondered what a B&W theme would do.
You know, it’s not too bad.
What the heck, I thought, is a heck? Why not say ‘what the hell?’ Then, I thought of hexagons, but all I could find was pentagrams.
You mean a pentagon, right? Pentagon, pentagram, who’s got the time to be picky?
That led me to think a blue motif would not look too bad on this flower.
That was right before I remembered the mosaic option in Pixlr.
There are other arrangements, but I liked that one.
So, there you have it . . . no writing, but some playing around with a virtual copy of a real flower.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.
