Weekly Photo Challenge – Unlikely

This weeks Photo Challenge wants us to show “a photo of something unlikely.” We have a Monstrose Cactus that has had as many as 10 buds on it at one time, but that was a few years ago; nowadays there aren’t nearly as many buds and it can be months on end before any show up.

So imagine my surprise when yesterday afternoon, while playing ball with the dog, I noticed a bud on the plant. It was unlikely that it would bloom last night, but it did. It was also unlikely that after 9 a.m. this morning it was still in bloom and not halfway wilted. I went back inside and grabbed my camera, then back outside to catch the beautiful side lighting. I don’t like taking pictures in the center of the frame, but there was no other way to avoid the power and telephone lines that would have been in the shot.

Already at 2 unlikely situations, just as I was going to take a photo, a giant bumble bee came into the photo – unlikely number 3. After taking some photos of the bumble bee and flower I continued to shoot just the flower…or so I thought. I got 2 more photos with unlikely insects. One resting on a petal and the other flying up to the flower.

Without further ado, here are my submissions to this weeks photo challenge.

Digital Mixed Media Experiment

I’ve been fascinated watching people on YouTube create Art Journals. Inspired by their creations, I thought I’d try my hand on a digital mixed media look. This is what I came up with as an eCard for my step-fathers birthday (I left off the last piece with his name). Follow along as I show you step-by-step how I created this image.

Weekend Freebie 05-25-18: Splash Texture

Each weekend, starting Friday evening, I will be giving away something for free; to start it might only be textures, but as I get more into (digital) mixed media, it might be digital stencils, digital brushes, or even an image that you can use. I hope that you enjoy creating with the freebies.
Today’s freebie is a photo of an ink, or paint splash that I converted to black and white.
