Breathtaking

We visited the floating flower market while we were in Amsterdam, Bloemenmarkt.

All of it was gorgeous.

But there was this one shop that seemed to have more exotic flowers, so we wandered in.  There were flowers everywhere – even hanging from the rafters.

It was incredibly beautiful.

Whimsical Flowers

I don’t often change my photos much on the computer.

Occasionally, I do a bit of cropping or a few small adjustments with contrast or saturation.  But generally, I leave them as natural looking as possible.

There was something about the curly little petals on these wild asters, though, that tempted me to play with their hues.  They were already sort of whimsical, so I just made them more so.

I kind of like how they turned out…  Maybe I’ll do this again sometime.
