Gazania, Kentlands Photowalk, Gaithersburg, Maryland USA IMG 4746
 
We have gazania flowers in our home garden in Kentlands, a planned community within the City of Gaithersburg, Maryland. These are small flowers that are available in a variety of colors. They do well in planters and require little attention. 
I used a sheet of red paper to create the background for this photograph. As usual, I used iPiccy.com for photo editing.

Gazania in our Kentlands home garden
 
This is one of the many gazanias in the planter at the front of our home in the Kentlands community in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Gazanias are small flowers that add a lot of summertime color and are great for photographs.
To obtain a background like this, simply hold a sheet of paper behind the flower. I use the free service of iPiccy.com for photo editing. Have some fun as you photograph your flowers.

Splash of Color
 
I enjoy photographing the gazanias in our Kentlands home garden. The natural colors are striking. After editing our flower photographs, I sometimes create additional images for my Imagination series which is just for fun. This series, by the way, has lots of followers on Pinterest.
This splash of color is a color edited gazania.

Imagine Good Things
 
As we begin a fresh new week, imagine good things and add some excitement to your actions. My Monday morning begins at Endodontic Associates of Washington for the second phase of my recent root canal procedure. Hopefully, all will go well.
As you can see, this photograph of a gazania in our home garden was color edited for my Imagination series.

These are photographs of a gazania in our home garden. The  first photograph shows the natural colors. The second photograph is color edited just for fun. It is difficult to improve the gifts of nature but you can create a different impression with color.
Enjoy the colors of summer with your camera in hand.

Mood adjusting gazania
 
We have a stormy night in Maryland and it is a good time to edit a few photographs from my morning photowalks through the neighborhood. I thought you might like this yellow gazania to brighten your reading and your mood.
Gazanias add a lot of color to the garden and they are fun to photogaph. Actually, I did not need to walk very far for this photograph since this flower was in our front planter.

Imagination on a Stormy Night
 
As I write this short blog, we are having a severe thunderstorm in Maryland as we end a day of very hot weather. I've been editing flower photographs taken during my photowalks through Kentlands, our home community in Gaithersburg.
This is a gazania from our home garden. The image has been color edited using iPiccy.com so you will not be able to find this color when you are shopping for flowers. This will be posted in my Imagination albums on Flickr and Facebook.
