accuracy matters to me, being informed matters to me, learning new things matters to me. i have learned a lot of new things as a result of my photography but sometimes i make a photograph just besause i like what i see. this photo was made in the Japanese Gardens at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. the flowers were blooming on a bare tree, no leaves at all. it's likely that if i had searched, i could have found the name of the tree and could properly identify them for the photo. that didn't happen. i liked the flowers, i photographed them and i moved on. sometimes it's like that.

i've probably mentioned this before and i will probably mention it again, the image that i post to Google+ these days is 60% quality. there are several reasons i do it, the reasons would likely bore you. the image i post on my photography is 100% quality. by and large, i would suspect that most people can't really see the difference. in the event that they purchase the image for a fine art print, the quality level becomes very important.
