Community Garden by Me

The first plant is what I call triple heart clover or wood sorrel. An edible plant that is very tasty and lemony.  I could safely say one of the best tasting wild edibles you could find. This plant is grown all over on lawns, woodland sides, parks, etc.  You can infuse it in sandwiches, but I prefer to use it as a garnish (just eat it raw) in order to preserve the nutrients and  the strong lemony flavor.  The second and third photo I believe is an Iris.  Correct me if I am wrong.  The photos are available for purchase at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/Flowers-and-Plants/  You can also purchase my first photo book for $6.98 in PDF format at http://www.blurb.com/b/7135384-here-comes-the-daffodils-series  Enjoy the morning everyone with some good ole photos!

Photo of the Week

I love the fact that you can get a good shot of a beautiful flower such as a common blue violet shown here below.  It has a very clean texture upon the violet surface.  One key thing if you are going to get a close up shot, but are shooting from a far distance is to crop.  However, you want to make sure that the subject is clear to see, other wise it is going to come out terrible.  To put it lightly, if an image sucks from the start, post-production will not make it better.  If there is too much blur in an image, eliminate it move to a better looking one if you took multiple shots.  The only exception I find blur to be excellent in is when you move the camera quickly as you shoot neon lights at night.  This would be good because you would end up with streaks of lights, plus well lit areas like NYC’s Time Square offers a lot of light that will not make your image too dark.  If anyone has any suggestions on when blur is good t use let me know in the comment section.  As usual, do not forget to follow and check my website at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/ to see what photos I am selling!
