Earth Day!

I've been waiting for 4 years for this view...

I've been waiting for 4 years for this view...

Four Years... I almost gave up.. I wish I was the Rose Whisperer, because I have no idea why this year these plants bloomed. This is the view from my kitchen window. It faces the neighbors on the west. Four years ago I planted these climbers... and I've waited a long time to see more than one bloom! We'll see if they continue to produce throughout the year. Fingers crossed!

This year, while reading the David Austin catalogue, I became a little obsessed with their photography.. the bokeh in the background.. I am in love.

This is a similar vantage point, with much more depth of field... which one do you like better?

I wish there was Smell-o-blog-vision.. you get the idea...

Happy Day, Earth.

Edit: Speaking of Depth of Field... here is a little tutorial I wrote on how to photograph your art.. Did you ever catch it? I'm a little bit proud that I shot all of the images in our book, "Acrylic Solutions".. (there were 1-3 shots taking of Chris at Northlight) but sad I am not given photography credit.
