Whatsoever is lovely…day 15

Thanksgiving cactus

Another exotic. When I got this years ago because I liked its colors. I called it a “Christmas Cactus”, but apparently it’s actually called a Thanksgiving or crab (because of the shape of its segments) cactus. Also known as a Schlumbergeria. I played around in Topaz Studio 2 trying out different painterly effects.

Gan Xingfu (chasing happiness) 赶兴福

This November I am chasing happiness by photographing and sharing one lovely thing I see each day. I do edit the photos, often with an artistic effect like the one above, because playing with a lovely thing makes me happy.

Note: My son checked with his co-workers and, while they haven’t heard the phrase gan xingfu, they thought it was just fine to use.
