My good friend Dan (www.danielruf.typepad.com) and I were visiting about the direction photography sometimes takes us. There's a tide we sometimes find ourselves fighting against and that's the pull between capturing images that the public purchase ( often landscapes) and the others- for example flower and still life images. I told Dan that I couldn't wait to get over to Orange City when the tulips start to bloom and how much fun I've had the last couple of years capturing the beautiful variety of flowers they plant.
I can't remember the last time I've had someone purchase a flower image but one of the things I look forward to the most during spring and summer- is capturing flowers in a new and exciting way. Now there's also the beautiful sun rises and sunsets, the water falls and streams, not to mention the butterflies- the list goes on . I captured the above mums on my deck- as it was to windy to shoot anything outside.I used an old barn window for the backround of the top image and one of my wifes scarves for the other.
Well, I suspect you get my point- spring is here- lets all get out and enjoy it in our own special way.Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
