03/25/11 - Primrose
I stopped in at The Garden Hut in Fuquay late yesterday afternoon. One of the friendly workers there, Brenda, brought my attention to the primrose saying it was one of her favorites. I might have overlooked it actually, but after a quick study and taking some shots, I really like it. Although off center just a tad, I really like that the face of the background yellow flower is visible in this shot.
We were having some fun with Brenda's glasses:
Only a really good sport would let a 6 year old hold their sunglasses...
An exercise I did this morning was to go to the SmugMug homepage and search on 'primrose flower' and see what others had shot. Neat!
There were several other shots I took yesterday that I really liked. I've loaded them up into my Inspirations gallery if you have time to look (first 6):
Thanks for the feedback on yesterday's azalea shot. I agree with a few of you commented RE it's a harder flower to compose shots of than some others. Just lucky that one flower was sticking up so nicely in front of that ready made background.
