This is follow-up to my earlier post, I sold a photo!. I knew that one of my photos was going to be used as a background image on an interpretive sign. But I just learned from my contact person with Bluestone + Associates that the sign was installed this month at Klehm Arboretum and Botanic Garden.

Quite a few of the parks where I hike have structures or other vestiges of days gone by. During our hike to Clear Creek Metro Park, there was a log cabin and a barn made of hand-hewn timber. For a while I had been thinking, “Wouldn’t it be fun to take my photos of these structures, and give them a vintage look?” So here is my first effort at doing just that.
This post features assorted, spring flowers that I photographed this past April in Ohio that did not have spiders on them. Click on a flower if you’d like to see a larger version of it. Hovering over each photo with your mouse will display the species name if I’ve managed to identify it (Update: I’ve since gone back and added an identifying caption after each pair of flowers). If you can identify any of the mystery flowers, I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
If I were a professional photographer, I guess this would be a very ordinary event. However since I’m not a professional photographer, this is kind of exciting! A while back I was contacted by someone from a graphic design firm, Bluestone + Associates. The firm had been contracted to do a project for Klehm Arboretum and Botanic Garden, and as part of this project, they wanted to use one of my photos.
