This is a bench in the greenhouse at Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Boylston, Massachusetts USA. Taken 4/18/11.
Nikon D300, PSE 9 and Topaz Filters to create more of a painting type effect, 200 ISO, handheld, 70×300 Nikon Lens, f/6.3.
(A flower is relatively small… Still in a way-nobody sees a flower-so I said to myself-I’ll paint it big. ~ Georgia O’Keefe)
Dedicated to a very dear friend of mine who passed away 6/8/09. We grew up together and her family owned a Florist Business in our hometown. When we were kids, her Dad would let us work in the greenhouse! Patricia left us too soon! She was a gentle soul who always had a ready smile for all who she met!
