This is another take on my “Old Jars” photograph. The original was “straight”. This one has some textures applied to it.

White Prickly Poppies, photographed on a light box, processed to bring out its best features, then applied a texture.  I like it both ways — on white and on a texture.

A view of Cypress Creek in Wimberley… The river and Cypress Creek are two of the many wonderful things about Wimberley. Cypress Creek flows out of Jacob’s Well and increased use of groundwater in the area with the area’s growth threatens our wonderful environment. Water is precious — don’t waste it!

Utility decoration

Murals are common in this part of Texas, and it is also common for businesses to try to draw attention away from their ugly utility meters and other distracting objects with decoration. This is the back of a building in New Braunfels.

Grungy Gruene

This is a corner of Gruene, Texas that I particularly like – appropriately rusty metal roofs, old wood, even a Texas flag, and best of all yellow bell blooming.  For those who don’t know, the town name, Gruene, means green in German and is pronounced Green.

Pride of Barbados

These striking flowers are called Pride of Barbados or Red Bird of Paradise or probably other things as well. These particular instances are growing at the side of the Visitors Center in Wimberley. I could not resist capturing them!
