Today, I traveled all around the world, and all I got you was a bunch of lousy flower pictures… part 1…

a 1

Hey, I did the best I could.

a 2

I didn’t actually travel around the entire world, but I did see plants from all around the world.

a 3

I went to two very large botanical gardens today.

a 4

Both are within just a few miles of my mom’s house in the Bay Area, the house where I grew up.

a 5

The first one contains plants native to California.

a 6

These photos, and the photos in the next post, are all from this botanical garden. Then, I have a bunch of photos from the other one, that has plants from around the world.

a 7

I haven’t been to either park in years… decades…

a 8

But considering the fact that it is summer, not spring, I found a lot of pretty flowers.

a 9

I could go back in spring, but then you would have to look at like 5,000 flower photos.

a 10

Most of you will probably get bored and wander off during this series anyway.

Wait, those aren’t flowers… just red leaves. That belongs in part two.

a 12

I know that not everyone loves flower pictures. But I just like to see if I can take really good photos of them. My dad used to take photos of flowers, back in the ‘cameras with film in them’ days.

The intricacy of nature is endlessly fascinating to me.  Some of these flowers are tiny. The interplay of light and shade is a balance to take into consideration.

a 16

I really like the colors.

a 17

Even the rather plain ones.

  1. The flower photos are absolutely extraordinary! The photo of you at the start was totally unnecessary. 🙂

    That’s pretty… hey I’m coming to your neck of the woods next week! I want ocean. And tacos. And yes, flowers.
