…it was a wonderful trip and as always it is good to be back home. The show went well and I hope to have the link to it soon … then there was the days of shooting and fun with family that followed. Last Thursday it was off to Filoli Gardens in the morning and from there to the Stanford Mall for more flower shooting. For years my daughter has been telling me how beautiful the flowers were at the Stanford Mall and I was about to find out.
A constant during my visit was rainfall … along the coast, inland, it didn’t matter and the terrific thing is that all the flowers had droplets of water on them.
The shot above Scabiosa Fama is from the Stanford Mall and I was absolutely amazed at all of the flowers that are on display there. A great place for the whole family … the photographer in the family will have endless beautiful flowers to shoot and the rest of the family can spend the family fortune in the seemingly endless number of high end stores in the mall. Seems to me that the Mall may well be the place of choice for the family outing.
Filoli as always has an endless array of flower beds in bloom and who can dispute the beauty for all to enjoy. It is a step back into a different way of life and not in an unpleasant way.
So you choose … hard to pass either of them up … shoot Filoli in the morning and shoot your wallet at the Stanford Mall in the afternoon 🙂
Have a beautiful day … keep breathing and smile!
Filled with dreams and songs of love, I wander
Meditation, softened by the peaceful lands of grain and
the illimitable blue sea overhead, draws my heart to
my lips as one whose talent is in song.
I yield to the thousand felicities of this transport, like a
child led by his father’s hand; and no questions darken
this day of my content.
