VIEWING THESE FLOWER PHOTOGRAPHS ARE AN EXCELLENT WAY TO START YOUR WEEKEND!


IMG_1245-S.JPG

Greetings all! I trust everyone has had a good week.


On Tuesday my daughter and I went to Manito Park and Duncan Gardens in Spokane, Washington. It had rained that morning so the humidity was higher than we are used to, but it was a beautiful day. We spent at least 5 hours walking to the various specialty gardens and through their greenhouse. Besides all the great exercise we got, there were so many flowers to enjoy, and of course take pictures of. My daughter started using a macro lens for the first time and the above flower is one of hers. This flower was found in their greenhouse, and I believe it is a double Begonia.

Someone recently asked if my photos are "touched up". The only thing I do to my photos is to crop them to eliminate some of the necessary items that may take away from the photograph, and I crop to center the subject.

I did not have time this week to do a mid-week post so I am posting this Friday morning my time.

I debated whether to use the above photo as my first one or to start with a rose. It was a toss up, because which rose would I choose to be first? And I thought the first photo above was wonderful. But I decided to put the following rose second:

IMG_5527-S.JPG

My daughter of course took the next photograph, which turned out to have one of the gardens as a nice background

IMG_1201-S.JPG

I want to include the following photograph that I got from one of my game cameras. Because of the lighting I could not crop very much. This little one is only a week or so old. It has been a long time since I have seen one this young. You can barely make out part of my house in the upper right hand corner, to give you an idea of how close to my house this was taken. This does had her young close by and I had been watching her this year, figuring she had a young one close by.

Next up is a Zinnia. My mother loved Zinnias. She said it was one of the few flowers that had flowers also in the center.

IMG_5770-S.JPG

I saved this last one until the end because I was so impressed on how it came out. I have others from the plot I found this one that I will share in upcoming posts.

IMG_5707-S2.JPG

This brings us to the end of the photographs for my weekend post. I hope you find at least one item here that you enjoy. I was able to get many photographs this week to add to my portfolio.

I am using a Canon EOS Rebel T5 for all of these photographs, except where noted. My daughter uses a Canon EOS Rebel T6.

@aid.venezuela continues to do an excellent job. Here is a link for @aid.venezuela's recent Fundition Program: https://fundition.io/#!/@aid.venezuela/7kvlw6ot4

Whether you do a donation or go to their blog post the money is used to help their fellow citizens.

end of post graphic.png


I shared previously @socialbot, which is a bid bot, raises money for @schoolforsdg4, and eventually additional social programs. You can use their bid bot or delegate to them. I am doing both.
Their link is https://goldvoice.club/steem/@schoolforsdg4/n3onxnpik

They are making progress toward their goal, although even after achieving their goal the need will still be their and many time Fundition will continue to collect monies.

end of post graphic.png

@zaxan is the founder of @aid.venezuela. I was lucky enough to be chatting with @zaxan as he was pulling @aid.venezuela together. I had met @zaxan previously (maybe a year prior) when he warned me about someone from or claiming to be from Venezuela. The charity they were trying to convince me donate to did not exist. I had not decided to donate when I was given the warning.

Currently @zaxan has done a wonderful job with @aid.venezuela, although they will continue to need support such through the steemit community to help children and the elderly, until their internal issues are resolved.

I am providing this short background information to lead into a Fundition program "A request for support for my design work on the blockchain" by @zaxan. https://fundition.io/#!/@zaxan/9ip1vvj57

This project is to raise money to purchase a a computer. He has been able to save some of the money for this purchase. He does graphic design work to help support his family and to do the work he does for @aid.venezuela.

You need to read about this Fundition campaign because for certain amount of donation he is offering his graphic design skills. You can read about this by following the above link. You will find what a certain donation will make you eligible to receive. You will find this information under rewards on the right hand side of your screen.

end of post graphic.png

As usual I would like to list a few charitable users that I try and support. I include them as partial beneficiaries of my posts. It is a small amount that they will receive, yet each is doing a lot to help people. Please check out their blogs and support them in anyway you can.

Another charity program has come to my attention. I am currently gathering information. This program is located in Africa, and I have a messages sent to the person I believe is the founder. It is a school for poor children. Once I am comfortable with the charity, besides donating myself, I will share information here.

Some I have supported for quite awhile, while some are newer.

@aid.venezuela
@schoolforsdg4
@theunion
@womenempowerment

Each of these users have a unique service they provide and I applaud their good work. Thank you for considering them.

Good thing your daughter started with macro photography, it's great for flowers, and the first photo you chose is very successful, it looks very delicate.
Retouching photos is not a negative thing, on the contrary, they can be improved a lot by balancing lights and shadows. Anyway, the photos look great as they are.
Very beautiful the photo where you appear, the garden in the background is a beautiful frame.
Greetings :D

Sir @r2cornell, this very interesting photography. Even though there was a debate about picture which became first, second, third and so on. I really like everything. The most thing I like again here is the way you tell all this, flow like a water. Thank you for this inspiration. God bless you sir

Hey. Photos, as always awesome. The question is, how is your crop of black and red currant this year. We have no harvest in Latvia and onions, too. In the season of onion ripening, the price is under 2 euros per kg. Although potatoes must be born, because it rains.

19.07.2019 19:40
2

Thank you. I currently do not have any currants growing. It should be on my list for future purchase. This year I have a large crop of plums. Two varieties. The one variety usually does not set fruit due to frosts when they are in bloom. My potatoes and onions are doing well, but too early to tell how productive. This year I am going to have a great crop of beets. I have not had any for the past couple of years.

Glad you enjoyed the photos

A most needed incentive to start the weekend. Really tiring over here.
I love your T-shirt. I think I'll have a similar one made. Beautiful background.
A dream garden.
I also liked the picture after the deer. Interesting how around the red (fucsia?) petals tiny yellow flowers decorate even more.

Thank you. I am glad you liked the deer. Zinnias come in so many colors, and they make a wonderful cut flower for a vase.

For you, we can see pictures of many beautiful flowers and see some great photography . These flowers are very beautiful . When you share flowers with us, we see an extraordinary photography. I have now started using various tags in my post such as palnet, neoxian, creativecoin . Please see my blog.

HAVE A GREAT DAY

Thank you very much. I appreciate it

Glad to hear you are using these other tags. One post goes to multiple platforms. Those of us who upvote comments here on steemit make it so you can earn more than you could on steemit alone. Creativecoin is new to me and I had already posted before I realized I had CCC. I did an edit but looks like it has to be in place when you first post.

Everyone should be using those tags, especially neoxian and palnet. Whether they know it or not they are still earning there.

21.07.2019 15:04

Before I forget even at a 20% upvote here on neoxian city my vote has more of an impact because of the amount of NEOXAG I have.

21.07.2019 15:06

I just saw your photo post on creativecoin. My vote did not count. I looked in your wallet and you have 1000CCC that have not been powered up. I am wondering if that is why my vote came up NaN.

Power it up. They are doing another airdrop and you may have to have the first staked to get more.

21.07.2019 16:17

Thank you very much for your information . I will do it soon

THANKS THANKS THANKS

21.07.2019 16:34

The 20% upvote here amounts to $0.13, while on Neoxian it amounts to $0.462. With the 50:50 split you still make more. My next post the creativecoin tag will work. It will not pay as well as as neoxian city because I have so much more tokens there and have no plans to delegate any of it. But there should still be earnings. Adding it all together it should help a lot of people grow and earn more.

22.07.2019 18:45

Grandpaa @r2cornell, you are looking handsome today.

The flowers are just awesome and your blog is one of the ways to see the weekly flower shots of a different variety. But I believe as now so many tribes are in place now in this Steem ecosystem, at least you should post twice a week.

Thank you grandpaa, namaste

I am hoping to getting back to posting twice per week. I have more of my SP back and seem to be recovering my voting power quicker. On neoxian city I am not concerned about running my power low.
