My parents’ Azaleas were so pretty the last on Mother’s Day. I couldn’t resist spending time trying to capture the delicate beauty of their flowers.
We took my wife’s car on this trip, a decision we made at the last minute. I didn’t think to grab my tripod from my trunk before we left. I spent so much time waiting for the breeze to calm, and without a tripod, it was just an exercise in keeping a steady hand and having a little patience.
