On a recent trip to visit Kenny’s Dad and Mom we decided to take M for an evening walk, something we have been enjoying recently. We drove over to a lake near their house, loaded M up in her Baby Bjorn and took off walking through the flower garden at the lake. It was just nearing dusk and the perfect time for Kenny to capture some of the pretty flowers on film. Luckily M was ready to be out of her Bjorn anyway so I carried her around the garden and let the photography pro go to work.
It was really pretty the way the gardens were laid out, lots of structure, symmetry and patterns within the groupings of flowers. Kenny knows that the purple ones always catch my attention so he made sure to get a good shot of these beautiful purple wildflowers.
I’m sorry to say we don’t know the proper name of these purple wildflowers. If someone knows what they are please let us know in the comments.
I like the way he used the rule of thirds here and the important parts of the picture lay right at the intersection lines. Stuff like that comes naturally to Kenny but I always have to think about those things when I’m trying to get a good shot. I also really like the bokeh on the right side of the picture. I only recently learned what this term means; Bokeh describes the appearance, or “feel,” of out-of-focus areas.
Isn’t it neat the way pictures always take you right back to the moment they were captured. This picture will always remind me of the warm summer night by the lake, the first of many walks we will take with M near her Grandparents house.
