Emerging Photo Geek
Originally, I was going to camp out with the computer and chill out when I got home. We are working hard on the hotel renovation and it is killing me. So I just wanted some couch time, maybe a little face time with David Tennant and something savory to snack on. But I had to retrieve my back pack from the car for any of this to happen.
When I grabbed it and turned toward the house I noticed something white flopping in the wind by a tree. Honestly, given the quality of care our neighbors take with the community park, I thought it was litter. Nope. As soon as I saw it bobbing in the breeze I knew it was well rooted. So I left my back pack in the car. Took out the camera bag and headed down to the park.
There are a couple of non traditional shots that are only slightly more interesting than the traditional shot. And then there are my favorite shots that I actually laid on the ground to take. My face was on the ground for those!
I love this one because the posture of this flower reminds me of the "Boom Baby" posture of Cuzco and Patcha at the end of Emporer's New Groove. Or any Nathan Lane "tada" moment. It just seems so happy to be out in the sun. The only problem with today's shoot is that I didn't have my hand dandy homemade diffuser ready to go. So the light over exposed the white petals. This required some edit to make it look almost like it is supposed to.
