KI and I once again traveled to Colonial Williamsburg. Hope you are not tired of hearing of this wonderful place! Our last two visits, we stayed on site. This time we lodged at a Colonial House right on DOG Street, the main drag. It has been about 5 years since we stayed at the Orlando Jones Office, our favorite house. Besides being convenient, we immerse ourselves in the living history by being surrounded by it. The houses are genuine historical places too, either being an original building or a restored one like the Orlando Jones Office.
Another reason it is fun to stay right on the main historic street, Duke of Gloucester, is that KI and I can take a break from the sites as well as each other. KI usually trudges around with me while I photograph flowers in the spring. She is such a good sport. We walk through all of the gardens on site, and I admit I can spend hours in one garden shooting the flowers under different light and waiting for the right light too.
On this trip, KI took a break, and I continued to wander. I checked out the month old lambs too. There were two sets of twins and one triplet(I save that photo for next week’s blog!)
So today’s blog is an attempt to capture the flowers in the perfect light so that their features are enhanced. I hope I did these gems justice. I even name the series, “Soft Light”, a reference to the kind of light these beauties deserve.
Enjoy Spring in Colonial Williamsburg and thanks for supporting my work!
