IT’S ALMOST LIKE “WHERE’S WALDO”

•May 22, 2015 • 2 Comments

I was simply walking down the path…taking in all of the beautiful sights…and even though I was keenly aware of my surroundings, I completely missed this amazing example of “Living Garden Art” the first time I passed by.

Is it cool?

Is it creepy?

I’ll let you decide…

JUST DRIVING DOWN THE STREET…

Actually, yes!  Take a look at this beauty I spotted while I was leisurely driving through Old Town Orange, California.  I would welcome any help with determining the year and make.

I thought a sepia treatment would be appropriate for this period image.  Proof…it pays to always have your camera!

May I present the final images from beautiful Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, California.  I hope they give you a small sense of the pastoral setting that is found In these quiet gardens nestled in the hills above Pasadena.  Enjoy.

PIPER AT SUNSET

There is nothing quite like the setting sun accompanied by the unique sound of the bagpipes.  This performance was captured at the Westin Hotel and Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

BE READY FOR ANYTHING..

One thing about photography…always be prepared for any and every type of photography shoot that may come your way.  Sure, there will be some that you may decline.  But for the most part, I love the challenge of a first-time shoot.

Last Thursday, you would have found me shooting an international event on the campus of one of our beautiful southern California universities.  I was contracted to shoot both inside and outside.  They wanted crowd shots.  They wanted shots of each speaker (which was complicated by the lack of lighting in the darkened arena).  They even wanted images of the setting before the crowds arrived.  And that is where these shots originated.  It’s the bell tower, which stands tall in the early morning light.

It really is a very pastoral environment, and the gardens are truly photogenic.  Following along one of the many serene pathways, sights like this one are plenteous.  My camera was constantly to my eye!

And, a repost of the previous garden scene.

Southern California…so many opportunities for a photographer.
