The Smithsonian has gardens spread out throughout the National Mall. After going to the Natural History Museum I decided to just walk next door to the Butterfly Habitat Garden. There weren’t any butterflies because it’s still pretty early in the season. I did see two moths frolicking, but that was about it and they were fast, so no photo, sorry.
I mostly went there to see the flowers. I love flowers. I love the contrast in colors and textures.
My cousin asked me “Why don’t you take classes and do portraits?”. People don’t interest me. Nature does. I feel, to sit and take photos of people all day long would be a waste of my energy.
I’d rather be walking through a garden or a park photographing what catches my eye. I just hate that I don’t yet know how to make what I see with my eyes show in what I photos. I like my photos, but I don’t love them.
