A Baker's Dozen!!

Recently I was asked to think about doing a calender of some of my flower shots. So, I decided to pick our a dozen or so and see what everyone thinks...

More Reynolda Gardens & Highway 220

To say, "It was a flower day!!", would be an understatement. I have received some constructive criticism that my blog would be more enjoyable and reach a wider audience if I cut down on the number of photos I use in each post. I honestly try but I guess "trying" and "doing" area two different things. 

I do welcome and listen to my critics. Consequently, I have considered going back and removing some photos from some of the post but justify keeping because they serve as a record of where I have been and what I have seen for me. I will continue to search for balance. I have considered doing a "best of" blog but that is really more work effort that I want to put into this effort of expression on my part...

Come back later. Publishing to see what it looks like.

Reynolda Gardens Beauty!!

In my earlier Reynolds Gardens' post I used my Samsung Galaxy 4 cell phone camera. The following photos were taken with my Nikon D7000. Can you tell a difference?

Highway 220 Beauties!!

On the way back from Reynolda Gardens yesterday I stopped and shot some roadside flowers that the State of North Carolina had planted. It was still overcast so the light was just right although many of the flowers were past their prime...

...and some were in their prime...

Gone, Past Its Prime & Prime Time Beauty

I return to our current home and the PUPS are ready to take off on their now familiar PATH.

Eddie has a smile on his face. Dinner is next!!
