Once again, the inspiration pic for the flash fic didn’t do much for me. It should have! It was a terrific photo, but nothing popped into my head. This might possibly be due to me working on The Flamboyant Flamingo the last few days. I’m past the halfway point, and I’m not just editing, I’m also adding scenes. I hope to finish in the next couple of weeks.
I’ve also been driving around the area a little, searching for background for the new cover. Crossed the Caloosahatchee River, found a parking spot, and took some photos. Lilypads are always nice, even when they aren’t flowering.
In a different part of that same area was a dead tree. I like looking at them. So spare, even regal. I didn’t realize until I downloaded the pictures how crooked this one was. Was I standing on a hill or what? 🙂
A beautiful, striking bird. Notice the red eye. This photo, and the one of the dead tree, were treated to the Orton Effect. The heron (and tree) were masked back in at full sharpness while the background remains slightly blurred.
Have a great week! See you Friday.
