Flowers of all kinds bring me peace of mind. When it’s me and my camera I can’t stop making photos. Like this Daylily after a brief rain shower.
I’m just a simple photo enthusiast who seeks ways to tell a story through my photos. While the technical aspects of each photo I make are important, I think it’s more important to have each image tell a story. Start with a wide view, for example, and then transition to a mid and lastly close-up composition. Like I did yesterday with a patch of Torch Lilies in my neighbor’s backyard.
It’s that time of year here in SW Virginia when “flower hunting” is best.
I captured two images of my neighbor’s blooming Blackberry Bush. I was fortunate to photograph a visiting Bumblebee in between its snacks on numerous flowers. Those flowers will soon be replaced by (hopefully) plump berries.
Both of these images are a signal that springtime in SW Virginia is well underway. Hopefully, the remainder of 2021 will offer lots of outside photographic activities and travel compared to 2020 … which as we all know was not so good.
