The flowers in my garden are really doing great this year. Lilacs (jorgovan, lat. Syringa vulgaris L.) and lilies (lily of the valley, djurdjevak, lat. Convallaria majalis) were especially pretty and abundant, but for one reason or the other I didn't catch them on camera. So now I'm making my amends and posting here these purple beauties.
Photographing flowers, apart from obvious reasons, can be great also because they are such a great material for making custom graphics if one has some spare time to play and be creative with a photo editor. Results will always surely be worthwhile: it is fun but it can also be useful. For example, you could use such patterns to enhance you web site or a blog. I think I'll try one of my new patterns as a background here, and hopefully it will look as good as I expect.Thankfully, it is Sunday today, a gloomy and rainy day, so I had some time on my hands and so these pictures and patterns came to be.
