Tulips + Imagination,  Meadowlark Photowalk, iPiccy.com Editing

 

Spring is a wonderful time for those of us that enjoy photographing the colors of the season.  Flower photography is an enjoyable hobby and walking for a few hours to take pictures is good exercise.

If you live in the DC Metro Region, you will want to visit Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, Virginia.  This 95 acre garden is a property of the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority.  The address for your GPS is 9750 Meadowlark Gardens Court, Vienna, VA 22182.  Admission is free.

Dolores and I took lots on photographs during an April visit. And, I will be using some of those photographs in future blogs.  The purpose of this blog is to provide a short demonstration of the fun you can have when you use the free iPiccy.com photo editing service.  My primary focus is to create photographs that are good enough to post on the internet and in blogs.  Editing will always improve the quality of the image.

After I edit a group of photographs, sometimes I will create additional images just for the fun of playing with the light and colors.  The first photograph is the original and the second photograph is the image that was edited for our Imagination series.  The way that you save additional images during iPiccy.com editing is to change the image number.  I add a letter, such as A to the original number to save the new image on my computer.

Hi Roy and Delores.

With 95 acres to walk through and view those great flowers. I can see why you have a couple of shots to share with the world.

Thanks for doing so.

Have a great day in Gaithersburg, Md.

Best, Clint McKie

You're very creative with the colors, but the first picture is my favorite. That should be framed and hung in a place to be admired by many.

It is sometimes a good idea to revisit old blogs and reblogs. We might even find some good ideas for new posts.
