A GARDEN OF PASTEL
Sometimes when it’s cloudy and I don’t have the time to venture up or down the coast to capture some of the beauty of this great state, I simply head down to my local Armstrong Garden Center and wander along the countless paths lined with dozens of flower variations. Ignoring the confused stares of other shoppers, I grab my camera from my backpack and begin to shoot.
Click! Click! Click! You can hear the rapid fire of my camera. On my right and to my left, from roses to zinnias, I’m capturing everything that has even a remote possibility of becoming something special. Such beauty! I could search high and low and never discover this amazing variety.
From that, I’ve landed on what I believe will become a series of four flowers creating what I may title, “A Garden of Pastel.” I’ve included the first of the series for your preview.
Most of my flower photography has been of a more bold nature. However this time, I wanted to show you a softer side. It’s like the softer side of Steve!
