Well okay, a heavily manipulated picture of a dandelion

If abstrat dandelions are not to your taste here's a Hebe which is in full bloom at the moment. This week's entry for the Tuesday and Wednesday edition of Wordless Wednesday.

Is that the same picture, before, and after?
Very well done!

CherryPie said...

I think the dandelion looks rather like a firework and the Hebe makes me wish for a bit of colour in my garden!

A Simple Life said...

Yes, the 1st photo looked like a firework. Happy WW.

Jenn in Holland said...

Oh! Cool! It looks like fireworks.
I also love the Hebe untouched. Very nice.

Chuck said...

Simply gorgeous. I want to pick them and hold them and smell them.

ValleyGirl said...

It is SO not fair that you've got flowers blooming already!! Geez, I'd give anything for a yard full of dandelions right now!

Jim said...

I can appreciate the Hebe, the dandilion, well?? My imagination is good, but visualization is very poor for me.
Good picks though, and Happy WW&WT!

catsynth said...

I like both the original and the manipulation. The abstract version lends itself to all sorts of interesting interpretations.

Bobbie said...

I've never seen a dandelion quite like that before. Lovely. Happy WW.

Jen said...

I thought of fireworks when I saw the first picture, lol.
Lovely dandelions, both of them !

zamejias said...

Like Mar, I though of it as fireworks at first. :-)

It's a lovely flower shot. I also have another flower here.


Thanks for your visit at VERB.

Lori said...

That is a neat contrast shot. It makes the flower look completely different:) Happy WW and thanks for stopping by.

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Infrared Dandelion sounds like a kick ass title for a spy movie!

Mrs Wibbs said...

First shot is really creative and I love it! Looks like fireworks! The second is exquisite, I love the delicacy and detail you have captured here.

Gattina said...

They are both nice, but I prefer the manipulated picture it looks like a modern painting !

Heather said...

BEautiful as always.

The Lone Beader said...

I thought the first one was a photo of fireworks! LOL.

jennifer said...

My daughter asked me JUST THIS WEEK, when will the dandelions be in our yard? She is looking forward to a weed many gardeners dislike. But we go out in the yard, make wishes and blow on those lovley puffy little plants. And spread the 'dandelion love' ALL around the neighborhood!

Well, I must admit I thought the first picture was from an artistic Fireworks.
It's amazing how we can manipulate photos these days.

Great entry

I love the way both of them look like fireworks. I always enjoy seeing similar forms repeat themselves in the world.

Natalie said...

Interesting flowers!

Thank you for your visit to bosoxmommy.com!

Jan Parrish said...

Beautiful!

Andrée said...

The part I love about "highly processed" photos, especially of flowers, is that you are often able to see patterns of shapes that are not visible in the natural state. Like this one. Great work. Thank you for visiting my WW.

GreenBucks said...
