So, here’s the photo from yesterday . . .

. . . and here’s a photo of one of the purple flowers.

I should mention that photographing purple with digital cameras can be a dicey matter. THIS<<link post covers the reasons why. I usually have the opposite issue — blue flowers coming out purple — than the other way around.

In this case, the purple flower came out purple . . . but I wanted it more blue than purple. Easily remedied . . .

Honestly, with modern editing tools, you can get almost anything you want . . .

I mean, let’s see someone go to a nursery and trying to find these colors . . .

The Gallery for these and other photos from “reminder posts” is HERE<<<Link. The photos are only slightly larger (30-50%) but the details — and quality — are better in SmugMug than here.

Here’s today’s “extra” link . . . HERE.<<link . . . it has an example — among other things — about the difficulty in photographing blue, purple, and magenta colors. As I mentioned — and contrary to the link I shared at the beginning of the post — I have more issues with blue flowers coming out purple than the other way around. But — in case anyone is uninterested in the matter — the post only briefly covers the topic and offers much more.

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