Little bits of sunshine

In front of the Manor House at Gibbs Gardens, there are always colorful bunches of flowers along the walkways that lead up to the house and give visitors a great view of the mountains not far away.  It is easy to find many subjects to admire when walking along these paths.  I find the colors and textures here so attractive that I have a hard time deciding which to look at first.

The bright yellow of these flowers made them so attractive that I just couldn’t ignore them.  I also love the tiny hairs along the stems that show up with the back lighting and dark background.  Wish my own backyard looked this good!

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.
