I am still having a wonderful time photographing flowers and taking advantage of the amazing light that streams through my studio windows. The beauty of doing it this time of year, is that many of the flowers I have been photographing have been free – either picked from my own yard or given to me by friends and neighbors.
A couple of years ago a good friend of mine came over on my birthday and planted irises that she brought from her yard. What a special gift! I was disappointed last year when nothing bloomed, but that was forgotten soon after seeing the first flowers pop out this year. I was a little hesitant to cut them down. They looked really good in my yard, but I had other plans for them.
Right now it feels like I have an entire 1TB hard drive filled with flower images (that’s not true, but I like to exaggerate.) While I feel frustrated by the fact I haven’t had time to really work on all these photographs, it’s ok. I am taking a little break from teaching workshops this summer and am eagerly anticipating the fun I will have working on my flowers. Stay tuned…………………………..
