Almost! Imagine yourself walking through this beautiful garden with not a care in the world. That would be paradise!

Actually, this is the “Laburnum Walk” in the famous VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, on Friday, May 25th, 2012. It was a heavenly visit today! This particular section of the garden, all along the Laburnum Walk was awash in photographers. Also, three artists were painting and capturing the scene on canvas. I heard one of the visitors remark as she passed by on the path, that she thought it was “such a magical place”. A great description of this scene at its full glory.

Camera: Nikon D7000 – Lens: Nikkor 18-105mm

I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. In the past, photography was something I did casually, using very ordinary cameras, in order to capture family photos, travel memories, etc. With my first DSLR camera, a new world of creativity opened for me. I now see the world in a whole new way through the lens of my camera. I invite you to journey with me through my collection of photos and enjoy! It is my hope that you will find in my collection of work, some art that you will purchase.
