As promised I will be showing some more pics of the plants I saw during the week. I have to edit them so they don't take up too much space.
The pic here is something I created from one of the orchid photos.
Isn't this flower just exquisite:
it hasn't fully opened yet.
The altered picture was created using adobe photoshop. In the standard edit page I went to Filters and then Distort and selected the Polar Co-ordinates option. This is one of the more simple alterations I have done but it is very effective.
Now to the question of old books. I have noticed of late a tendency to use old books for various kinds of arts and crafts - altered books, collage etc. Personally I have a problem with cutting up books; they seem to be too precious. I wonder how others feel about this issue. I bought a book from the op shop recently with the intention of using it in a creation I am planning but I find it impossible to cut it up. It is not an important or particularly special book and cost me just $2.
Well that is my quandary at present. Any help would be appreciated.
