…for those who want to see them. So said the artist Henri Matisse. Or, to quote that other great thinker, Ferris Bueller; “life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while you might miss it.”
Today for me was a day to literally stop and smell the roses. The weather has been glorious today and on a trip to Alnwick Garden, after my son had finished jumping in all the fountains, I had a lovely time just pottering around taking photos of flowers.
Thankfully the place is chock full of pokestops so Beck didn’t mind being dragged round the ornamental garden, which was in full bloom.
I go here quite a lot at different times of year and there’s always something new to see.
One thing I love doing is bee spotting, slightly less glamorous than bird spotting I’ll grant you. I just love how fluffy they are when you see them up close
I’ve started printmaking recently and I think as I spot natural shapes and lines they will give me a lot of inspiration for designs.
It was literally a riot of colour today, and a great place to enjoy the sunshine.
I’ve done several weddings in this venue and it really is a photographer’s paradise with all the quirky features and stunning backdrops.
