i was convinced there wouldn't be much color left - the drought has taken its toll on the flowers and grass this summer. but as always, the gardens are a haven of beauty. as beautiful today as they were years ago and will still be in years to come. i tried to imagine how they looked years ago through the eyes of film... in our digital age.
i found myself with an hour to spare friday on my way home after a speaking engagement. me and my trusty 50mm....and the gardens. i was hot and sticky...but an oasis of beauty. i wish i had taken a photograph of the couple that stopped and asked me to take their picture - they were young and in love..... and taking pictures in the gardens while all dressed up. i wondered if they had just eloped and were sending home photos to their families.....
