I had never before seen this pairing, wisterias poking out amidst a wall of bougainvillea, and of course I had to capture the moment of floral harmony! (Location: South Coast Botanic Garden, Palos Verdes Peninsula, California) Textures and effects (applied to multiple masked layers at varied opacities and blending modes) include “You’d be surprised” from Jerry Jones’ Shadowhouse Creations, Topaz Simplify/BuzSim, Nik Color Efex Pro/Classical Soft Focus, and Photoshop oil paint filter. (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/11, 1/125 sec., ISO 200, morning sun)

    A potent mixture of plants…………………….gorgeous…………………….Joyce

  • Thank you, Fara! I’ve seen this particular part of my favorite local botanical garden many times but was struck by the sudden (new to me) appearance of wisteria among the usual bougainvillea.
