Adolescent sunflowers

My wife and son are growing various plants on our balcony, including three sunflowers. As with most adolescents, they are tall, gawky, and show great potential!

Pretty with pink

It’s a bit early for Spring but these pretty flowers are starting to bloom.

Flower bed

This is a pretty good Dad joke, I think.

Pretty Purple

I often walk to the supermarket for our weekly shop. This morning I noticed these pretty purple flowers (roses?) on a street corner.

Google Photos tries hard to come up with creative variations. Its attempt for this one didn’t quite work out, though:

Flowers and Construction on a Sunny Spring Morning

I went for a walk this morning to drop off some (long) overdue library books. I took my camera along with me and captured some of the construction in the city.

One of the aspects I like about Spring in our city are these flowers. They only flower for a short time, and I tend to photograph them every year (except, perhaps, last year).

Little Red Flowers

These flowers seem to all over Modiin. I have no idea what they’re called but they’re pretty.

Beautiful pink and white flowers

I noticed a few small bushes of really pretty pink and white flowers last Friday and snapped a couple photos and shared them on Instagram. This one is on my public Instagram profile that I created yesterday (variable post privacy options in Instagram would be awesome!):

I really liked how they came out and decided to return with my DSLR for more photos. The original photos came out seemingly overexposed (I have a feeling I didn’t reset my exposure compensation setting from another set of photos before I took the photos). I like the result after some processing in Lightroom, though. Here are some highlights. You can view my complete album on Flickr:

As a matter of interest, what works better for you when I publish image galleries? Something like a Flickr embed or photos uploaded to this site directly?

A dozen blooming flowers in a time lapse video

I just watched this mesmerising video of these beautiful flowers opening with my daughter. Great start to a day.
