Paper Whites In Progress
Paper Whites In Progress
As you can see I'm busy getting these paper white narcissus ready to send to all you wonderful folks that sent me your warm wishes for my November photo :0) Actually these beauties were shot at the Glascos Nursery in Brenham, Texas this afternoon. Used the 17-40mm, cropped and simplified in Photoshop CS. I really don't have the right words other than THANK YOU all!!
