Time to take a break from the junk, er, excuse me, “antique” store windows and go outdoors. Outdoors in this case are some photos from the Magnolia Plantation in South Carolina. A few miscellaneous shots from around the grounds. They’re the best I could do, considering the midday light. I would love to take another walk through on a better day, preferably early morning, and explore some more. A little cooler weather would be nice for taking my time but somehow dripping in sweat kind of heightens the essence of the place, and makes you think differently. I know there are a thousand cool nature photos at that place and I had ideas swimming in my head not too long after I left.
I went for the whole nine yards colorful, saturated shot here. I couldn’t think of any other way to process it to do it any justice. A wider angle lens and a few more flowers would have helped though.
This shot reminded me of the notes on a musical staff. Doesn’t look too melodic though. 🙂
The bamboo jungle was a different kind of environment for me. I’m used to jagged brush and maple trees, so the bamboo put me in a tropical mood real quick.
And finally, a nice scene.
