It has been awhile since I posted something on the blog. Summer has taken over, and with it, a lot of outdoor work. I'm sure that this is the case for most people. I have been enjoying my time in the gardens. We have many, many gardens. In fact, we probably have more garden now than we had yard before we moved here. It is a bit daunting at times, but makes for lots of time to contemplate many things while tending them.
Making pictures of flowers does not usually appeal to me. Most of the time, I can't get the picture to match the reality. The subtle, delicate translucence of flower petals is very challenging to capture. Little critters, though, are always a surprise when they are clinging to life on the leaves of a perennial and sometimes they cause me to run in and get my camera. That's right folks, I do not always have my camera with me! These cute little tree frogs are pretty easy to find around here. Sometimes I even find them in the spout of my watering can. In fact, frogs abound and dragonflies bask in the sun by the hundreds, if not thousands. When I was naming my photography business, the name I really wanted was Dragonfly studio. I still wish I had it. The problem was, the domain was already taken, and who can run a business these days if they can't get a domain name for a website? It's really too bad because we are located in dragonfly paradise here. Even if I can't use them for my business name, I am thankful for them because they help control the mosquito population out here at camp Sunny Day Pictures!
