Neat flower. Wish i knew what it was

Red twigs. They provided a awesome contrast in the garden

Some of the few flowers in the garden

2.5 sec shot makes for soft looking water

    I’ve been to the Getty Museum and it is such a beautiful a museum. You’ve captured the building, flowers and plants, and the city so beautifully.

  27. These photos are unbelievable!! Wow…so impressed.

    March 16, 2011 at 11:47 am

  28. Beautiful shots! That white flower you photographed is called a moonflower, or Ipomoea alba (we have them growing in my backyard, and we called them dream flowers when we were younger). They only bloom at night, and I’m pretty sure they’re very poisonous.


    March 16, 2011 at 11:53 am

  29. Amazing shots!

    March 16, 2011 at 12:09 pm

  30. I love the point of views in your photography.

    March 16, 2011 at 12:41 pm

  31. beautiful shots, and nice variety! in response to that photo where you said, “neat flower. wish i knew what is was”…the botanical name is Brugsmansia, and it is commonly known as Datura or Angel’s Trumpet. Also, as pretty as it is, it is highly toxic/poisonous.

    March 16, 2011 at 1:04 pm

  32. Last one is a winner.

    March 16, 2011 at 1:06 pm

  33. 35mm lens rocks! 😉

  61. Love those photos!

    March 18, 2011 at 8:42 am

  62. Nice Shots 🙂
    Realy Like this, but
    I really love “Loved the Lighting”, is it called a “silhouette photographs” ???

    March 18, 2011 at 9:47 pm

  63. There is a slight silhouette in that picture. What I did was crank the shutter speed up really fast

    March 22, 2011 at 9:08 pm

  64. Get out there and shoot shoot shoot

    March 22, 2011 at 9:10 pm

  65. I really like the silhouette shot on the second one. I really want to visit the Getty Center someday. I suggest maybe making the pictures a tad bit smaller next time to make them easier to view.. Just a suggestion!! Really beautiful shots all in all.

    March 22, 2011 at 11:28 pm

  66. Haha sorry. It’s just I’m on a 27″ screen. They’re small to me

    March 22, 2011 at 11:45 pm
