Friday Flower Fiesta (4-17-14)

Friday Flower Fiesta

Last week’s Friday Flower Fiesta featured Photographic Art of flowers that I have uploaded to my Flowers Gallery at Fine Art America in preparation for being an approved vendor at the fundraiser May 3 for Cat House on the Kings.

I am going to stick with that theme for this week, so all of the following Photographic Art flowers are at Fine Art America, which means they are for sale there.

Whenever I upload something to Fine Art America, it automatically posts to Facebook, so I usually get at least one LIKE on Facebook for each post…. usually Jim……. :)

This final Photographic Art flower, however, was one that I initially didn’t like, but something struck me about it so I kept it. It is my least favorite of those in this Friday Flower Fiesta, but over at Facebook it is my most popular Photographic Art creation. Go figure….

Friday Flower Fiesta (4-11-14) from Fine Art America

Friday Flower Fiesta

I have been uploading pictures by the dozens to my Fine Art America galleries in preparation for being an approved vendor at the fundraiser May 3 for Cat House on the Kings.

Knowing that flowers are popular at all times of the year with many people, those have been on my priority list for uploading.

I thought I’d share a few of them here in our Friday Flower Fiesta for April 11, 2014, which happens to be my 709th monthabirthday.

Music on Mondays–I never promised you a rose garden

The Music Chronicles of Russel Ray

Pictures copyright 2012 Russel Ray Photos

Many decades ago, around 1968, my wise old grandmother had me dig out a huge plot of grass and create a rose garden. I was forever down on roses. Still am. If it had been my idea….

As I was looking for a good subject for today’s Music on Mondays post, I realized that I never got around to doing a Friday Flower Fiesta post last week.

So why don’t we combine this week’s Music on Mondays and with last week’s forgotten Friday Flower Fiesta and let you listen to Lynn Anderson’s “Rose Garden” while looking at some pictures of the beautiful roses that were blooming this past month, all made into Photographic Art.

Happy End-of-March day!

Friday Flower Fiesta (3-7-14)—Bursting out in color

Friday Flower fiesta

Pictures copyright 2012 Russel Ray Photos

Spring sprung here in San Diego around January 2, but this past week the flowers have really responded to the rain we’ve had for the past two weeks. Some areas got up to 1.8 inches, which basically is a Noah’s Ark type of 40-day flood for San Diego.

All of the following pictures are from this past week. The aloes and bougainvilleas are looking particularly beautiful right now.

I have been exploring Actions in Photoshop and deleting Actions that I don’t like. The brushed aluminum frames are from an Action that I do like, quite a bit!

Friday Flower Fiesta (2-21-14)—Photographic Art featuring orchids

Friday Flower fiesta

Pictures copyright 2012 Russel Ray Photos

My wise old grandmotherMy wise old grandmother used to say, “Never throw pictures away.” That was back in 1966, but her words are even more relevant in today’s digital photographic world with Photoshop, Topaz, Photomatix, Photo-Paint, PaintShop Pro, Gimp, Picasa, ACDSee, Aperture, and more.

One of my favorite flowers is the orchid because there are so many of them and they come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. According to Wikipedia, the orchid family is one of the two largest plant families with somewhere between 21,950 and 26,049 accepted species. That’s quite a wide range! That doesn’t even include the over 100,000 hybrids and cultivars that horticulturists and plant geneticists have created for our enjoyment. Why leave it to Mother & Father Nature to create something in millions of years when we can do it in decades, right?

I took thirteen orchid pictures which Eric Cooper, a former employee, initially classified as throwaways. Problems included poor focus, over exposure, under exposure, and big splotches and dead spots on the flowers. Remembering my wise old grandmother’s words, I had Eric throw them (pun intended) into a folder labeled throwaway orchids.

Today I retrieved them and used Photoshop and Topaz to create Photographic Art postage stamps. Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed creating them. Let me know which is your favorite—13¢ is mine.

Friday Flower Fiesta (2-7-14)—For those needing some beauty today

Friday Flower fiesta

Pictures copyright 2012 Russel Ray Photos

WordPress (for me) is still messed up. Ever since around January 2 when someone added new functions to my blog.

  • LIKE buttons still don’t work on blogs whose URLs end in wordpress.com.
  • GIFs don’t work anymore.
  • Can’t get to my site stats.
  • Can’t get to the little gold star notifications unless I reload my site.

I’m even creating a WordPress site for a friend, and hers is working perfectly. Jim’s WordPress site is working perfectly. My home inspection WordPress site is working perfectly.

Hmmm. It just occurred to me that perhaps an automatic update to my theme is causing the problems rather than WordPress itself. I’ll have to do some detective work this weekend and let y’all know if I find out anything.

I can’t even upload any photos right now, so after two hours of messing around here and not accomplishing anything, I’m just going to pick twelve of my best pictures from past Friday Flower Fiestas and put them here. WordPress, Mystic theme, and I apologize for the rerun.

Which is your favorite?

WordPress is really messed up right now. Alas, I’ll keep trying to work here but maybe WordPress is trying to get rid of me?…………

Today’s Friday Flower Fiesta pictures will be part of my Photographic Art collection, which means they will be for sale shortly. Of course, they will be significantly Photoshopped compared to the pictures below.

To see exactly what Photographic Art is, click on Photographic Art Introduction, which is a temporary PDF eBook.

To see the workings of my first catalog, temporarily available at My Wise Old Grandmother’s web site, click on Photographic Art Catalog. A completed version will be available Monday Morning.

Both are temporary because I’m looking for an eBook creator that, when the file is open, is sized to fit the screen. Right now, you have to click on the minus sign several times to get a page to fit on the screen. That’s irritating.

Nonetheless, sit back with your cup of coffee or hot chocolate and enjoy a collection of beautiful flowers.
