Cactus Bud (Travel Theme: New)

Here is another photo “experiment” with my new Lensbaby.   Added a texture of my own, and one by Kim Klaussen, with lots of layering in-between to achieve the right feel to the background while keeping — I hope — the selective focus/blur of the Lensbaby.

I’m not doing the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge today because it is going to take me awhile to compile my best pictures of 2012.   Will have that up in a few days.  Have a great weekend, everybody!

Edited:  After I posted this, Ailsa posted her weekly travel theme challenge.  Normally, I would post something specific for the challenge, but these photo just seem right for this challenge:  new lens, new photo, a new texture that I created & used on this photo,  new bud on the plant.  What could be better?  New!    Be sure to check out others who are participating in Ailsa’s theme this week.  Here are just a few:
