Proud to be chicken

Two weeks ago I was at the Orchideeënhoeve in Luttelgeest. As always a day full of colors, smells and lots of beautiful things. The icing on the cake was a poultry exhibition. What beautiful birds and other animals! Here a selection of roosters complete with their beautiful combs and proud look.

A wild hair day

Yep, I bought some flowers today. One of them is this gerbera. A gerbera with a wild hair day. Wonderful colors and amazing shapes. I made loads of photos of it.

Hope you’ll like them 🙂

Monochrome flowers

Flowers are one of my favorite subjects for photography. I always have flowers in my house. Either on a vase or my orchids are in bloom. Colors are an important reason for why I like them, but editing to monochrome is great to. It becomes more about shape. And the shapes of flowers are amazing too 🙂

Bright colors!

Last week I started a  I started a GuruShots account. GuruShots.com is a photography game, they say. It’s free, but if you want to get ahead, you have to buy swaps, fills and keys. Good quality of your photos does not mean that you end up high. It is determined by votes. Seems very fair, but the system determines whether or not your photo is seen. Only than people can vote for your foto. To be seen you need swaps, fills and keys. And then we are back at the begining of this post.

Fine way to earn money for GuruShots. It again shows that nothing on the internet is free.

Positive about starting that account was that I looked op a lot of old photos. The challenges were about colors, bright colors. So here some of the bright colored shots I entered.

Flowers on black

If you have been following me a bit longer, you know I love to edit my photos “On black”. I feel many subjects look better when the are placed on a black backgound. This time I’m sharing flowers on a black backgound. Ik hope you’ll like them.
