Friday Photos – Lillies


10 years ago I worked in a garden centre.  It wasn’t my best career choice (understatement).  The plus sides were that we got to eat the cream cakes that hadn’t been sold in the cafe before we went home and we got to take home plants and bulbs that were either sick or hadn’t sold in time.  To that end I have a hydrangea in my front garden going from strength to strength and some lillies in my back garden.  This year the lilly beetles destroyed the yellow and orange ones in a day (the beetles were then destroyed!) but my pink ones have thrived.

The children are now allowed to take the odd picture with my camera (they have their own too) but they also seem to have an ability to change settings I didn’t know existed.  So I ended up taking some very over-exposed pictures of the lillies, swearing at the camera before I’d worked out what was wrong.

So many people are using so many great apps to edit and add effects to photos – I’m a Picassa girl and also use Photoscape and PicMonkey – especially if I need to do something for my #ISpy photos (like make a blue flamingo!).  I’ve had a play with the lilly pictures ready for my Friday Photos this week – what do you think?

There’s another Friday Photo on my photo blog Just Photos By Me – please pop by and say hello!

  1. I love lillies, such beautiful flowers. I like what you’ve done there, it looks really effective!

    • Thank you – it’s search a learning curve with the software – I find some stuff quite intuitive but this has been much harder…

  2. Beautiful lillies. I love photographing flowers, and now experimenting too, with edits and apps. Picmonkey is fun.

Thank you for your comments! The Cheetahs and I really appreciate them.
