Onion / garlic family

Allium, onion/garlic family. This was taken at Rio Bonito, along the Blanco River, during Wimberley Arts Fest. Some flowers wow us by growing in masses, like fields of bluebonnets or fields of blanket flowers. Others are not so spectacular in the large, but very beautiful in their details. There are at least two bugs in this photograph, which of course I did not see when I was taking the picture.

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

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

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.
