Wordless Wednesday #2

I've seen different versions of Wordless Wednesday around the blogosphere for years and since I'm always saying I'll post more of my photography on this blog but then never do, I thought doing my own version of Wordless Wednesday would be good incentive.

I know this is supposed to be 'wordless' but I just want to say that I was really proud of this shot...this whole series of pictures, actually. These were taken late summer/early fall 2012; I had just recently learned how to use the macro setting on my camera, after wondering for years how people did those artfully close-up/blurred background shots. I thought these shots turned out amazing, and I couldn't have been happier with them. I took several hundred pictures just in that one trip to the rose garden. I love the flower, the little buds, and then the blurred bench, trees, shadows, and other flowerbeds in the background.

Beautiful photos, Marie! You've definitely got some talent. I'm starting to dabble in photography and I'm trying to learn all about my DSLR lately. I found your blog over at the GFC blog hop! Looking forward to reading your future posts.
