By increasing the exposure, I was surprised to see this plant looked as if it had been painted. Otherwise no changes were made except to crop it and give it a subdued frame.

Charlene says: 

The last telephone in our house that has one of these annoying cords is on the way out! For so many years, I fussed with the cord as it tried to curl up the wrong way or form knots on its own. Sometimes I lament the loss of older, treasured items in my home. However, this daily struggle with an obstinant phone cord is not a treasured memory. Long live the cell phone!

I thought the background fabric looked kind of prehistoric---just like the phone cord. I duplicated the layer and desaturated the top layer. I used Color Burn blend mode at 88% opacity. After flattening the layers, I adjusted shadows and highlights.

 3-D sign at local convenience store amid stripes starting at top with a blue sky. Did you spot the sparrow’s nest in the letter “e”? ISO100, shutter speed 750.

I'm doing my dangdest to have a garden on the mountain. Curernly I have two very robust lupine plants. Rather than doing one big radial symmetry - I opted to have a little dance of several.
