Welcome to Herbs and Spice! Two things have always fascinated me: herbs and spices, and cooking. I'm always looking for new ways to use the herbs from my garden(and other people's), and forever trying and testing new recipes. So sharing my loves of all things garden and kitchen seemed to be the natural thing to do. I hope my blog will inspire you in your own garden or kitchen, so enjoy!
So I was out in the garden this evening after it rained, and I decided to snap a few pictures of my crape myrtle, which has just started blooming. Then I just decided to play around a little bit with the pictures. And because I can, I will share them with you!
So this was the first one I took, and the only one I intended to snap when I went out:
then I cropped, saturated and softened...
then tried the original crop in B&W...
then softened in sepia, which is my favorite....what do you think?
Umm...then I got snap happy, and got a nice shot peering out through the lemongrass jungle, saturated slightly, and lightened
and then it was on to having fun with the lemon balm. I super saturated this one by accident, then kept it because it looked funky
Then did the same shot in sepia, with heightened contrast
As you can see, I love to play with cameras and editing. I can't wait until July, when I start going back to college to get my BA in Photography. This is why I love working in the photography business! Portraits aren't my thing; I love landscapes and macros of plants and flowers, and vignettes.
Sorry, this was last nights post....I fell asleep before I got it finished! I will be back later this afternoon with our "Herb of the Week"!
