wandering eye wednesday: week nine/2

Yo, yo, yo! How you doin’? HA! I just got home from a special birthday dinner with my mentee, and Joe was out walking Jones.  They came home all smiles and full of energy, and I can’t help but be in a good mood with all THAT, you know.  Plus, spring.  It’s kinda my jam.  I am definitely a spring/fall kind of girl.  You can have the winter/summer, OK?

Here’s a close-up of a mesquite tree branch in bloom.  The flowers are so Dr. Suess-ish, and don’t listen to Joe, because they really DO smell so good.  Mixed with orange blossoms and warmth? I wish I could bottle up that scent.  It’s just an instant good mood.  Seriously! Anyway, here’s the picture:

I’m still exploring Photoshop Elements, so I darkened the background and took out some of the color to make the subject pop.  I cropped it, too.  I played in PicMonkey for some other effects, but I liked the PS’ed version the best.  Can you believe this is an iPhone photo? Not like it’s the best picture ever or anything, but I’m amazed at the detail you can get with a phone camera!

Until next time!
