No Shadows, Just Sunshine :)
Yesterday after walking around Manitou Springs for a couple hours I was hot, tired, and a bit grumpy not having found the shadow shots (for PTC) for which I'd been hoping.
Ended up in a city park trying to shoot flowers through metal bars, gave up and walked halfway across the park to a gazebo. As I turned I noticed a gardener who'd appeared at the flower garden as I was leaving now approaching me. She said, "If you're looking for some pictures, I'll unlock the gates so you can go into the enclosures." Of course!
So I enjoyed an hour of shooting flowers and bugs and afterwards discovered the gardener was a member of the Manitou Springs Garden Club which maintains this park. I offered to send shots and she gladly accepted and hoped I'd put them on the club's Facebook page!
So a grumpy day turned happy with one small problem. I'm still on the lookout for shadow shots ;)))
