My son and I survived the long weekend of upgrading my computer. I now have a 2 terabyte internal drive, plus another internal drive and 3 external drives for backups!
I played around in my garden with my 50mm lens. Added texture

Ah...we photographers do have a way of 'eating up' memory, don't we! Glad you are taking precautions to back up and save all of your beautiful images. They are a 'treasure' for sure!!!

Ah, back to your trademark amazing florals. Beautiful off-center composition - there is a realy 3-D quality to this image - I feel as if the front flower is extending outside the frame. Lovely colors.

Now you have plenty of space for another wonderful photos ;) This photo is simply beautiful, Anita. Advantage of f/1,8 is apparent here and I really like its use. It's amazing how the flower beautifully merges to the background. What else to say - great colour combination, composition and I really like the texture you used.
