Spring, posterized


Because it's nicer than the actual view of my roof after yesterday's excitement.

Have you been able to turn on the AC? It's 88 here with about 100% humidity...YUCK!

Daryl said...

Petunias! Lovely!

Robin said...

Actually I didn't need it today Libby. Once the sharav broke the temperature dropped a good 15-20 degrees. Today was warm rather than hot and suited me just fine.

Leora said...

Cool! I like what you did. Posterizing doesn't always work for me. There is a photographer who lives a block away who is a master at this stuff.

Janet said...

these are beautiful!

This is a BEAUTIFIL picture, Robin!! I just read your previous post...oh, my!! I hope the weather has settled down over there and there is not too much damage!

kaye said...

love the effets, hope things have settled down after the big wind :)

catsynth said...

Very beautiful, and such bold colors and lines.
I did go back and read about the wind and dust storm. That sounds really scary, with things being blown over and blown open, not to mention the leaking gas, and houses catching fire.

We're glad you're all safe.

Anya said...

Nice flowers,
It give me spring feeling (@^.^@)

Pamela said...

Very positive of you to post lovely blossoms, instead.

Sara Bonds said...

Pretty Purple flowers! I went to the post you linked to. I cannot believe the wind bent metal. Wild. So, I can imagine this photo is better than the roof mess. hehe

Happy WW from Sara @ the Mostly Wordless Wednesday H.Q.!

I love your blog and the picture at the top. I love that you are blogging from Tel Aviv. Thanks for coming by my blog so I could find you! I look forward to seeing more :)

A Beach House Dreamer said...

This looks really neat. I'm a total fan of slight photographic abstractions!

Swoozie said...

Happy pink petunias make me smile!

Scott said...

Beautiful petunias. My garden is getting pummeled by rain right now... would rather be out there than on a Civil War battlefield. LOL.

Mojo said...

If you wanted excitement you should have been around here yesterday. Severe t-storms, tornadic events (why don't they just call them tornadoes and be done with it? Is somebody gonna sue if they misidentify the funnel cloud that just ripped half a trailer park into confetti? I mean really.)

Looks like we could be in for more of the same tonight. As long as the power and cable stay on for the Canes game I'm cool wit' dat.

Oh. Nice image BTW. (See what happens when I get distracted? Not pretty.)

Liz said...

Pretty colors - very springy!

Catherine said...

I like it as you deed it, Robin. The result is gorgeous. It enhances their colours.

Shannon said...

very cool!

This Eclectic Life said...

So gorgeous! I love this like crazy. I gotta play with the poster-izing. I don't take pictures as lovely as yours, but it will be fun, anyway.

Randall said...

That's a beautiful shot. Nice to see you still on the web. I've been away. I'm back with a new blog. Sadly no more model trains for now.
