Not an especially well-taken photograph. I have a tendency to shoot quickly without holding still. As a result, a lot of my quickie shots are a bit blurry. Nonetheless, they do catch a mood that pleases me, such as a sea of flowers and a lovely tree. Our botanical garden is always a delight to visit.
I have no idea what the name of this bush is, but it always fascinates me when I see it on my walks through the botanical garden. I should look for a tag. It’s such a cheery plant, and the long seed pods seem rather impossible given the pom-pom shape of its flowers.
Another photo from the day at the Carpinteria Bluffs here in California. Besides the Nikon V3, I brought along the Olympus Trip 35, which is proving to be a fun little camera. Right now, nearly all the flowers are gone except the most hardy, from seasonal and weather changes, and these cheerful yellow flowers add a bright touch to an otherwise beige, beige, beige landscape.
