As luck would have it

I went to the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park yesterday and was shooting photos of a group of sculptures on loan from the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C.  Those photos did not turn out well, but as I was leaving the rooftop garden where they are on display, I saw this flowering plant by the exit.  I really like how the image came out.

An Afternoon Shooting at Meijer Gardens

I stopped by the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park this afteroon to get some practice with my camera.  Here are some of the shots from the session. (Click on a photo to see a larger image.)

These next three photos are of “Aria,” by Alexander Liberman.

I have tried to get a decent photo of “Eve,” by Auguste Rodin but have never quite been satisfied.  This one comes close but the focus is kind of mushy.  IMG_9345

One of the things I am trying to do is to envision things in black and white.  Some of the photos I took today converted nicely, I think.
