Back to my fave minimal composition. I just believe that less is more.

The sound of a woodwind on a cloudy day...

Tulips

Some interesting facts: Although is unknown who first brought the tulip to Northwestern Europe, the most widely accepted story is that it was Oghier Ghislain de Busbecq, an ambassador for emperor Ferdinand  I to Suleyman the Magnificent. Tulips became popular garden plants in east and west, but, whereas the tulip in Turkish culture was a symbol of paradise on earth and had almost a divine status, in Netherlands it represented the briefness of life. Today, Tulip festivals are held around the world, for example in the Netherlands, and Spalding, England. There is also a popular festival in Morges, Switzerland. Every spring, there are Tulip festivals in North America, including the Tulip Time Festival in Holand, Michigan, the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Skagit Valley, Washington, the Tulip Time Festival in Orange City and Pella, Iowa, and the Canadian Tulip Festival in Ottawa, Canada. Tulips are also popular in Australia and several festivals are held in September and October, during the Southern Hemisphere's spring.

Flower Personification ~Happy weekend, my friends!
I really like this plant. The name comes from the Greek ορχις (orkhis), literally meaning "testicle", because of the shape of the root.
{Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orchidaceae.} 

The Greek myth of Orchis explains the origin of the plants. Orchis, the son of a nymph and a satyr, came upon a festival of Dionysus (Bacchus) in the forest. He drank too much, and attempted to rape a priestess of Dionysus. For his insult, he was torn apart by the Bacchanalians. His father prayed for him to be restored, but the gods instead changed him into a flower.
These flowers were previously called Orchis, Satyrion (Satyrion feminina), or "ballockwort".

Beautiful Mountains-Farewell to Winter

I read somewhere..."Many photographers want to out-do each other by using high-tech manipulated images. It feels soothing to view the works of Ansel Adams http://www.anseladams.com/ (black and white American photographer-1930) who knew how to create grand effects with a small German-made Leica."

A walk in the woods

The beauty of Nature and the stillness in the woods are spiritually uplifting. Today will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let your words heal and not wound.
~I found these words quite inspiring.

Introduction
Welcome to Betty Manousos' page on Google+

"Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I'm going to take tomorrow." -Imogen Cunningham

I'm an economist, photographer, and blog's owner. 
I started getting seriously into photography in late 2012 when I decided to follow my passion. What started out as part of a hobby has eventually become more of a passion. I think I've caught the photo bug. 
I like to call myself an aspiring photographer. That being said, even if I go pro some day, I'll still consider myself an aspiring photographer.

Google+ has fit into my daily online routine as a place to find like-minded people, discuss them and be inspired...and hopefully inspire others.
I've played in this space for a few months now, not actively though. However, I'm here to stay!

Oh wait! The thing that really annoys me would have to be someone who wants to be called "Grand Emperor Supreme!".
It drives me crazy when I come across arrogant people. (Read: Insecure, having low self-esteem.) These people are unpleasantly proud and behaving as if they are more important than other people. 

I think if they could rid themselves this trait the world might be a better place.
