Pinwheels (cropped pictures)

I don't know if anyone else will like these, but I love the interplay of light and color in these cropped "pinwheel" pictures, some are just so dreamy:

The Orchid - December 2019

Thank you to my friend, Tim (an employee of Trader Joe's), for giving me this orchid when I broke down sobbing in the middle of Trader Joe's after my mom was arrested.  He held me while I cried, carried my groceries to my car, and then gave me this orchid.  Thank you!  Letting me cry uncontrollably into your shirt in front of the whole store helped save me from another panic attack.  Once again, thank you!

Rose and Peony Pictures, Filtered

Just having fun running more of my pictures through various filters, just to see what happens.  (Some of these may have been posted already, but I can't remember.  Oh well, they're pretty to look at again and again.)

Random 2018-19 Pictures

(This picture is from a nearby park.  The rest are from my garden.  Some may be repeats of photos I've already posted.  But oh well.  I'm too busy to go back through old posts to check.  And even if they are duplicates, they're still pretty to look at.)

Closeups #3

There are no filters used on these pictures.  I simply used an overexposed setting and zoomed in.  And I love the effect.  My favorite way to take pictures of flowers.

I've been having fun cropping pictures I've already taken.  It results in some pretty pictures, and it's relaxing.

Closeups #1

Here are closeups of some of my pictures, which I think are even better than the originals.
