Bright as Sunshine
Sunshine brought luminosity to wildflowers along the Heron Rookery Trail – Indiana Dunes National Park.
In the Garden – Shades of pink are blooming.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Warm summer days are perfect for leisurely hikes on the miles and miles of trails at the Indiana Dunes National Park with a camera in hand.
Went out in search of lines, angles, and curves in nature to give them a try in black & white. All of these photos were captured on the same day at Chicago’s Garfield Conservatory.

Normally found in Mexico, Central America, Hawaii, and the Caribbean, the cold climate of the Midwest is much too cold for plumeria to survive. Unless, it is cared for indoors as in Chicago’s Garfield Park Conservatory. This one seems to be enjoying the indoor warmth of the conservatory, whether winter or summer.
Don’t do black & white photography much but I sure enjoy it when I do play around with it. I find this type of photography difficult because of the nuances of refinement and classiness that seem to pop out of an image that is captured well. I am working on that and I don’t give up easily. Alway up for a challenge, I am.
Took a walk around my yard and discovered that I was not alone! Plenty of insects were enjoying my blooming wildflowers. There’s a wonderful world even right outside my doorstep.
Finding points all over on my walks. From tips of leaves to flower petals, sunbursts. and railings.
Taking a glimpse into the world of macro photography.
This morning, I found myself walking between raindrops about a couple of miles into my hike. I sure was glad no one else was around because before long, I found myself . . .
Singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a wonderful feeling
I’m happy again
