I went to the Oregon Garden with my friend K today, so of course I have a bunch of photos to show you. The weather was perfect and the garden was pretty, as usual, but I'm not crazy about my photos. The lighting wasn't ideal and maybe I just wasn't ideal. Still, I have enough to show you that I'll divide them into two posts.
I tried to hold back from taking the same old photos I've taken there before and try some different ideas.
Okay, so how did this one make the cut?
K graciously agreed to let me practice some more portraits on her. I haven't done any portraits in awhile! Isn't she so cute with her vibrant scarf? R, doesn't her face/smile resemble our friend M.S. (de Brazil) in this photo?
K likes purple, so I like to pose her near purple stuff sometimes. (And Sunny D at other times.)
K spotted this goldfinch that some other people pointed out was sickly, which is the only reason I could get such close photos. Yes, I took advantage of an ill bird.
I like this gazebo. It's gazebo-y.
More gazebo. I want a gazebo someday.
I liked the "polka dots" on this bush.
Sooooo...I took quite a few photos of it. BONUS SUBJECT: Bee.
I have no idea what bush this is.
The clouds were cool.
Did you hear me say they were cool? Because they were. Cool, that is.
Mas to come!
