Mr. Green Man ~ 9-5-11

Back Bay National Wlidlife Preserve ~ Virginia Beach, VA


"I feel like I'm nothing without wildlife. They are the stars. I feel awkward without them." ~Bindi Irwin


This photo is linked with Lisa Gordon’s  “The Creative Exchange”

"Macro Monday” at Lisa’s Chaos.





For this photo I used a combination of  Kim Klassen’s “coolgrunge,” 
“Softandsanded," and “canvasbackmagic” textures.http://lisaschaos.com/

  2. Genie, So sorry about your knee--hope it doesn't "slow you down" too much. Thank you for all the nice comments-- I missed having you come by my blog--glad you are back. I know you are happy to have Bud back home--I'm sure you have lots of great photos to "pick and choose" from and then post. Glad your hibiscus is hanging in there. Too bad the flowers only last for a day. I don't have much blooming these days-it has just been too hot, but this week is going to be much cooler. Hope your Labor Day was relaxing and fun. "Mr. Green Man" is a great shot--that would have been perfect for SSS too. Take care. Mickie ;)

  10. Genie, I think my first comment didn't go through.

    This is an amazing art. And I love also the texture and how you played with it. You created very unique and extremely interesting image. I am learning how to work with texture and I am sure that I would never ever would be able to create an image like this. You have a beautiful imagination.

    And a grasshopper is wonderful with a touch of green color. Love this image very, very much. Great!!!!
