yellow! orange you beautiful?

i really, really love the last image…the soft focus on the HUGE zinnia & the wee yellow weed flowers sharp as a tack.

teaching photography…

my son (he is 11yrs old) is learning how to use my Nikon D90. He took my camera from me & wandered around the restaurant shooting the mums. this one is my favorite.

flowers made of butterflies

my very favorite flower, Hydrangea. Alas, the weather didn’t encourage many blooms this year. I suppose that makes these very special. I will dry them…i do so every year. They dry beautifully & look wonderful on my windowsills.
