For them not interested in reading, you can see photos in THIS<<link SmugMug Gallery.
When you click the links, it will open in a new window, and you have two options:
1) Manually scroll through the photos by clicking the “<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos.
2) There’s a PLAY/PAUSE button near the top-left of the screen with the transition set at about 5 seconds. Note: Above the play/pause button there’s the option to go full screen. Most of these look really good viewed full screen. You can then still use the”<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos (this will pause the slideshow).
If you want the full experience, keep reading.
Them who might have noticed me not doing much online these past four days probably knew I was traveling. Them who didn’t notice me not doing much online these past four days probably don’t read my blog.
Well, I was traveling, and when I travel, I travel with my photography equipment (plus the phone camera).
I’ll be doing a different post about the phone camera photos, but this post is about the D7500 photos I snapped.
Relax; there aren’t that many D7500 photos (unlike the phone photos).
The above shot is from my sister Louise’s flowerbeds . . . as are the following.
The above is . . . I forgot to ask, but the color is striking. Of course, the fly coming in for some nectar adds additional character to the shot. Here’s a wider view (sans fly) . . .
I forgot to ask if these next flowers (columbines) are descendants of wild columbines I had when we lived in Michigan. The ones I had were harvested from the Upper Peninsula and date back to the early 80s.
Warning: the Block Editor is still a pain to work with and can cause stress levels to spikes. Use with caution. Avoid if possible.
I also didn’t ask the name of these flowers . . .
I like the look of the unopen buds, especially when viewed head-on (from the top).
She also has a couple of lilac bushes . . .
She has a lot of flowers, but I only spent a few minutes snapping photos, and only of flowers we won’t have in our yard.
While most of the weekend was spent catching up, sharing stories, and eating, we also went to a park for a quick walk. You wouldn’t think there would be much of interest in a wild area, but . . .
Mind you, I don’t like seeing dandelions in my yard (or near my yard), but the seed ball is photogenic . . . .
As this was a bit further north than where we live, not many wildflowers were out and about . . . but I saw the remnants of some . . . .
No surprise that I don’t know — or bother to research — the names of the dead flowers.
I did see branches of trees and of shrubs sporting new growth, and it looked interesting enough to photograph . . .
We walked on a suspension bridge, and this log was just begging me to photograph it . . .
If you click the photo for a larger version, you still won’t be able to make out the flies on the log or the types of seeds trying to push the log along . . . but you would if you checked out the full-size version in SmugMug.
You know what’s coming next, right?
That’s right, Bob . . . it’s plugins time! Remember the interesting flower and dive-bombing fly? Well, here’s another “look”.
And those other neat flowers? Well, they are suited to a Georgia O’Keeffe Treatment . . .
. . . plus a trip to Topaz Studio for some restyle and framing . . .
The lilac clamored for a different treatment using Topaz Impression . . .
The dandelion seed balls wanted a monochrome treatment . . . but then also opted for a trip down the Impression highway . . .
The spouting twig wanted in on the action . . .
. . . choosing the fire-bush look.
The river driftwood right off the bat asked for two different treatments . . .
I told it those looks weren’t original on this blog, but it insisted on them.
Believe it or not, that’s about it for the D7500 photos. Really, I could have snapped more but I made up for it with the phone.
Anyway, let me wrap this up with a gallery of the above . . .
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
