My favorite flower. Just beautiful. What type are they?
Can you take black and white? Go Ansel Adams!

need more soil they are a a cross between mammoth sun flowers and the Russian multiple head sunflower. two years ago i had both out and had allot of them over 50 threw out the yard of both types and now every year new ones pop up from bird droppings and idk how they keep coming up. ive never plaid with black and white but i could sure give it a try. Bali i use to keep and breed fish so i use to take allot of pictures of them thats my background of pictures. let me tell you its so much easier taking plants of stuff out side of an aquarium lol. i will get out with my camera more i just found it. ill post them as i get them and thank you so much for the kinds words photography is another passion of mine. id like to upgrade my camera but money just isnt there of course lol.

thanks bali. i do not have any fish tanks any more i had to sale them all a little while back i have only one left and it has nothing it it. its a 300 gallon tank so its a beast lol i couldnt sale that one was my dream to have a tank that size and i got it as a gift. i have an old photo bucket account with all my fish pictures but i just dont remember what the account log in. i also have a canon but its not a DSLR its just a very nice point and shoot and ive been tinkering with it for geez 5 years now ive played with all the settings and know it pretty well. its all about knowing what you have and how to use its strengths. i recently just found my camera it was its was packed away in a box that i didnt up pack when i moved. I will try and get out and get some more wildlife pictures for you guys
