The time is finally here for fresh flower photography and I’m long overdue for a blog update.
Michigan weather has decided, as always, to skip spring and go from “warm winter” to “volcanic apocalypse” within a couple day span, which means that I finally had the opportunity to get out and photograph flowers at my favorite flower shop.
I’ve decided that instead of making one big post with a ton of pictures, I’m going to showcase a new photo every day/every other day. That way, each one will get it’s own spotlight, rather than get lost among the others.
Today’s is one of the more “ethereal” looking photos of this trip. I really fell in love with it even before editing, which it didn’t need much of. It kind of reminds me of My Fair Lady and all the begonias and other large flowers in the intermission section, and it looks like it’s dancing a little in the wind too.
You know you’re in Michigan when one day you have sunny, relatively “warm” weather for late November (upper 50s!) and the next day THE WRATH OF THE SNOW GODS HAS FALLEN UPON YOU.
That’s what I woke up to this late morning, 15 minutes before I had to be at work (yay not setting alarms!) and left to in the late afternoon. I had a solid 3 inches of snow on my car and there’s a good 5 or 6 inches outside from the snow we got all day.
After putting up our Christmas tree, because this weather is clearly appropriate for it, I threw on my coat, boots, and earmuffs, and ran around outside trying to take pictures of the snow. A little difficult with not a lot of light to work with.
But I got a couple shots I liked. Here’s one of them!
Hoping to take some nice pics tomorrow during the day. I’ll also be at the Detroit Zoo for their first weekend of Wild Lights light exhibit, so I’m planning on working my magic there as well. Anyone else going?
