Exploration. I love it.
Seriously, the first time I visit a new place it’s like Christmas morning. I just can’t wait to see what’s in every metaphorical box! That’s one of the many reasons I love Jainé! She’s always taking me to awesome new places and it temporarily fulfills my need to explore. Our latest adventure was a trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Oh my word…I have new a dream. A dream to shoot a wedding at the Palm House at the BBG! The grounds were stunning and the receptions take place in a glass house. Talk about sweet lighting! But I’m getting ahead of myself…first, we met at the Brooklyn Museum. We had a goal of getting to the gardens ASAP, so we didn’t explore the museum….at least not on this trip!
I love these hot pink and purple flowers!
This is The Palm House I talked about! I am drooling about shooting a wedding there someday. Oh, it will happen!
We were there at the beginning-ish of cherry blossom season, so the trees weren’t fully bloomed. But they were still beautiful!
My favorite flower (plant?) of the whole day!! I’m not sure what it’s called…I kept calling it lilac, but after a quick google search I know that I am very very wrong! But it just doesn’t make sense because when I smell a lilac scented candle, this is the type of plant I picture! And obviously that means I’m right! :)
Sooo, I think this one is actually lilac. If not, they shouldn’t have put the sign for lilac so close to it! It fools people like me who know nothing about plants/flowers/shrubbery/trees. Like really though…nothing.
Pocahontas anyone? This tree totally had me talking to Grandmother Willow!
We were having a back-button focusing lesson with Jainé’s bag as our subject when at least one passerby verbally called us out on poor subject matter choice…“you have all this beauty around you and you’re photographing a bag on a bench!?” Yeah, that’s how we roll! :)
