Dr. Spaceman and some more lovely flowers :)

30 Rock is one of the shows that I watch a ton. Dr. Spaceman, played by Chris Parnell, is one of my favorite (but somewhat rare) characters on the show. Below, he says that "science is whatever we want it to be", since he is a "doctor" who has a loose grasp on pretty much everything. Since I like science, I think this is pretty funny. (Btw, if your doctor is similar to Dr. Spaceman in any regard, I would be worried!!)

For my 'show off your shot' entry this week, I took a picture of my ultra-important timer which keeps me on task! I wanted to have a great deal of contrast, but I learned that I needed to keep it dark enough so that I didn't lose the details in the shadows of the timer's knob. {I'm sure there's some photography-speak for what I'm trying to say.}

Some purple flowers from the previous trip. They used to be more pink, but I decided it would be fun to color shift them to purple.

I used some different textures and 'crystallized' this flower.

...more daisies from the same garden. I'm surprised how this came through editing! I liked what the texture did for this photo.

I hope everyone is having a lovely Thursday!
