Instead of trying to ignore the pixels in a low-resolution digital image from an aging camera, I've just gone with them, embracing them as the reality of the situation. I've saturated the colors and sharpened the pixelation a bit. Above, an orange zinnia in the garden.
Fresh and aging copper sunflowers in the west side of the vegetable garden.
An extreme closeup of the fly in photo posted above this one.
The almost Spirograph-like center of the newest, and last, sunflower to bloom. You just can't take a photograph of them without bees or butterflies feasting on their nectar!
A honeybee unfazed by my presence. He's actually pulling out seeds as gathers nectar.
Yesterday's haul—A medium-sized white tomato, a "normal" red tomato, plum and yellow cherry tomatoes. I made a great yellow sauce from these tomatoes—the red sort of faded and the yellow stayed strong. I didn't add anything but fresh basil, salt and pepper, and the finished sauce was as sweet as honey. I froze it for one of those sad and cold winter days, lol.
