A night at the gardens

Last Friday, after what had been a very long week, Danielle and I decided that a visit to the K-State Gardens would be a perfect evening activity. I packed both of my camera bodies and we soaked in the last rays of daylight among the new blooms in the garden. Danielle recently started a blog and was in need of some personal photos to use throughout her posts. I gave her my spare body for the evening and we had a great time capturing the essence of spring. Oh, and she also tested my abilities as a photographer- who knew she would be a tricky client?! Maybe it's because I'm so familiar with her smile but getting her to smile naturally in front of the camera was not easy. Luckily, I'm full of terrible knock knock jokes ;-)

My love of photography came to life several years ago when I realized how much I enjoyed capturing the details of flowers. To this day one of my favorite places to be with my camera is in a garden. At the end of a tough week, this outing was just what I needed!

When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet: all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field,

the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Psalm 8:3-9

This tree has blooms that are literally growing down towards the ground. It almost looks like it's raining flowers- so cool!

Danielle- you look good with a camera in your hands ;-)

Thanks for a great evening, DDY.

in Him,
