A Photo Prop and Some Flowers


A few weeks ago, just before the weather started to turn towards Fall, I decided to drag one of my favorite photo props, my wicker and bamboo bike, out to the backyard for a handful of photos while enjoying the last few days of warm weather.  To brighten things up amidst all the green, I added a few flowers with an Autumnish feel...pink, orange and red zinnias and some big ole sunflowers.


As much as I love the change of seasons, I sure am going to miss all the beautiful folliage and flowers.  They're so perfect for photographs.  Starting with this bunch of flowers, I'm once again making visits to the florist to buy flowers, rather than photographing the nature found in my own yard.


I'm joining up with Texture Tuesday again this week, so I've added Kim's warm sun texture to all of my photos...mostly just to soften and change the color tone of my shots.

Hope you're all having a good week so far!

Chat later ♥ Tricia
