Friday Flower Fiesta (12-8-17)—San Diego Botanic Garden in December

Friday Flower Fiesta

I like to take my photographs and kind of mess them up in Photoshop and various other programs so that they don’t look like photographs anymore. That means I’m always on the lookout for new digital photo editing programs. One I discovered a few days ago is called “Impresso Pro” by a company called JixiPix. They claim to have

a long and lucrative history developing well-known 3D, Video and Multi-Media software, not to mention an industry of iOS and Android apps. Thanks to the response from our users, we have been recognized as one of the top developers from Apple, Mac World, USA Today and other industry leaders.”

Yet they don’t have a page on Wikipedia….

Nonetheless, following are 24 photographs from my December visit to the San Diego Botanic Garden, messed up a little bit in Impresso Pro.

Friday Flower Fiesta (2-6-15)—Bromeliads

Friday Flower Fiesta

Spring sprung here in San Diego around January 2.

A sprung spring means that it’s bromeliad season.

The best places to see lots of unusual bromeliads are the San Diego Zoo, which is an internationally recognized arboretum and botanical garden as well as a zoo, and the Botanical Building in Balboa Park.

Here are a selection of bromeliads from both places, although these are pictures from the past that I cataloged today after finding them in my “these-are-really-bad-pictures-but-maybe-some-day-you-can-make-something-out-of-them-in-photoshop” folder.

The last picture uses the “out of bounds” effect. If you’re interested in learning how to create that effect, see my tutorial from October 22, 2013: Creating the out of bounds effect in Photoshop.
