Thistle time art for “O” stories voting

Three days left in The Alphabet Challenge “O” Stories round and it’s official . . . this will go down as a low participation round. With three days left, I don’t see a slew of voters coming in from a cruise or something and casting 20+ votes. Heck, they’re probably in quarantine from the cruise.  

. . . but, just in case, if you’one of them and have not already done so — please read the stories and then cast a vote for your favorite of the three. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “Alphabet Challenge O-Stories” are HERE.<<link

This will be another quick post because I’m busy . . . so, here are the reworked photos of thistle flowers; reworked in Topaz Studio . . .

You can actually buy thistle . . . and I’ll probably do that.

As before, here’s the gallery of the reworked photos. Not bad, if I say so myself . . .

The SmugMug Gallery of these reminders photos is HERE<<<Link. The details are even better there than here.

For them who have already read and voted, a different kind of treat . . .

. . . HERE<<link is a link to a post from 2014. It’s me trying some humor with photos. Very short, so if you’re in a hurry and pressed for time, well, this won’t take long.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

  1. Your Emilio-fied photos of the thistles are all beautiful and artistic!

    Hmm…wonder what happened to all the readers/voters from N to O… ???
    Maybe they’ll return by P.
