Summer Time and the Photo are easy!

I was at a farmer’s market and saw these sunflowers in peak bloom and wanted a photo. I took a few close-up photos, but I wanted to capture all the flowers, which means I need a good background for the photo.

I do what I always do when taking photos. I looked all around for the best background and spotted the red and white Gingham table Cloth (also called the Farmer’s Weave), which screams summer and picnics to most people (it does for me). However, the standing-up view included cartons of vegetables and people, which I don’t want in the photo. This was when you got to squat for the shot, and sometimes you have to change the angle to get the best view.

Suppose you want some photos of your favorite flowers, head over to your local farmer’s market. The photos are free!

I’m a world traveler and an amateur photographer, to date, I've visited seven continents and thirty-four countries. Due to bills (and a desire to eat), I am forced to work a mundane nine-to-five job to pay for my true passion. This blog is a way for me to share my crazy creative side, my travel photos with cheeky stories, travel tips, or details on how the photo was taken. Come join me as we travel the world together, without having to leave the house or get out of your PJs.
