We always seem to be in a rush or we feel we need to spend time and money to escape, to see something new when sometimes all it takes is a trip to our own gardens.
Besides travel my two passions are gardening and photography, but it was only a few years ago that I started to photograph plants and flowers in a way that made me appreciate them even more.
Angle, light, shadow, and close-up shots really help elevate the beauty of a plant, giving a new perspective on an old friend.
I have a grouping of my favorite plant photos in the link below. Take a look and maybe they'll give you an inspiration to escape to your own garden.
