Since it’s been so dry lately, the weeds are taking over so decided to do a ‘WEEDS’ photo shoot. I had allowed this thistle to become way to tall, but when I saw it was beginning to have blooms thought ‘why not?’ let it go. Now the photo is taken, I can cut it back. These are not my favorite because if you touch them without protection, it is hard to remove those minuscule little fibers. If they’re good for something, I wonder. The bloom is the prettiest lavender color though.
It kind of reminded me of the quote ‘Pretty Is As Pretty Does’ only I was thinking ‘Pretty Isn’t As Pretty Does’ because these can be hurtful.
To the original photo, I applied Nancy Claes NC220 and then Kim Klassen’s KK_May and changed the green Hue.
Another version with an effect applied that comes in the Adobe Photoshop CS5
