Do you remember when photography was awe inspiring? When every day brought you pleasure just because you had a camera in your hand? Before having more equipment that requires a pack mule? Before there were clients, billing, expenses, insurance and worries about making someone else happy? Do you remember when you did photography just for fun?
Well, that’s what my trip to the New York Botanical Gardens was like. It was a beautiful day in May. Overcast, and it had just rained the day before. The Peony were fully open and the roses were starting to bloom. I had a tripod, and extension tubes and I was in heaven. The flowers were perfect, the light was perfect, the weather was perfect and I was shooting for no one but myself. I love being a food photographer but, its half photography and half business. Ah, the good old days when photography was just fun.
