My Favorite things…

I know, the song from Sound of Music says Raindrops on Roses but, I think Daffodils are just as nice.  This is a macro shot of one of the 20 million daffodil bulbs that have been planted at Gibbs Gardens.  Many of these are blooming right now.  It is quite early for this but Atlanta has had a mild winter with rain and warm weather over the past month or so.

I am very glad to think that winter has left us now but one of the things about Atlanta weather is, the only constant is change.  I suppose it really doesn’t matter right now.  It’s time to enjoy the beauty of Spring and not worry about cold snaps that may or may not happen.  In any event, it’s a great time to go out and see the beautiful flowers.  They are closed on Monday so don’t try it tomorrow but I recommend that you plan the trip soon!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
