Afternoon at the nursery

This last Sunday, Ashley invited us over to see Sebastian and visit her favorite nursery.1 We’ve been there before.

While Suzi and Ashley picked plants to buy, I wandered with my camera, finding flowers2 Clearly, I needed to take pictures of the tags so I could create more descriptive captions. to capture.

Flowers

A trip to the Rose Garden and a nursery with a mirrorless camera. Clearly, even f/2 is too wide an aperture for some of these shots. More experimentation is needed. ;-)

My favorite photos of 2018

According to my yearly practice, here are a few of my favorite pictures I posted here over the past year. A couple of these actually have people in them. Sadly, I took only one of these in the second half of the year, and that was July 4th. Cannon Beach accounts for 40% of these.

Having posted more than nine pictures to Instagram this year, my “top nine” actually might have some significance.

It’s clearly time to take more pictures…

The pics are from the following posts:

White Patch

Along my regular lunchtime longboard push, there’s this house with a patch of white flowers.

Photo Walk

Driving by the airport, I noticed daisies growing on the bank across the street. I parked at the nearest spot and walked back, taking pictures along the way. I met up with Ashley and Mousse. We walked through Orenco Station, then back to Dawson Creek where I took a picture of my favorite grove of trees.

Blossoms

Yesterday, Ashley, Heather and I went to Orenco for frozen yogurt. Mmm… We walked to look closer at the construction near the MAX station and inspect the crane. Walking back, we paused to enjoy the blossoms on the trees.
