on a much smaller scale i have found a garden that i love in montgomery. it is the english garden at the shakespeare festival and it is hidden in an alcove, almost behind the theater. lately it has been covered in a mixture of poppies and larkspur and bees have been going absolutely crazy whenever i visit.
not much variety, but i can't help but be enchanted each time i go there. the whole park area is beautiful to visit and i can't wait to go biking there with my new cruiser. yes, i broke down and bought a bicycle....if i can't afford the jeep soon, at least i can get around on a bicycle. right?
so i got knocked out in the second round on the challenge - i can show you the shot i entered on the round. what i figured out is this group really has an aversion to flowers and it doesn't matter how bad (or good) the other shot is, there are some people that will automatically vote against flowers. the end. not that i think my shot was the end all to be all...it's just a matter of knowing your audience right?
i currently have coral roses on my desk and though i love looking at the color, especially in combination with my blue jars (i will not say the name because then i will giggle like a school girl)...i can't quite frame up the shot to my satisfaction. i think the straight stems and rigid lines are stifling me. or maybe its this nagging allegy session that i seem to be having.
photographers - does that happen to you. you look and look at something and the shot just doesn't happen? or....you try and try to take shots and nothing looks good? anyway, i need to get dressed and figure out what i'm doing with my day. happy saturday.
