Flower Power

Some weeks ago I went a little photo-overboard at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The flowers were lovely and plentiful, and there were so many crazy varieties I'd never seen before.


I have been wanting to share some of the results on the blog for a while, but couldn't think what to say about the photos.

Sometimes I forget that I don't actually need to say anything at all. Photos can speak for themselves, right?

Hello Elizabeth, Thank you for visiting my blog and I'm glad you did so I could discover you.
I love flower pictures and yours are so beautiful. I adore the first photo much. Unusual.
You are so right when you say photos speak for themselves. I was thinking a similar thought just before I came here, because sometimes I just don't know what to say - so on those days just posting a photo is more than enough :) Thanks for helping me really 'get' that ;)

I am so looking forward to browsing through your blog. I'm off to bed now but I will be back to look through your pages tomorrow.

Hi Vanessa, thanks to you for visiting as well.

these are wonderful. It's true that sometimes you don't need to explain images bc they speak for themselves. I love these...I can't believe you say you need inspiration?! maybe I can borrow some?!
:)
