Blooms, blossoms, flowers … its spring!

abrooks_090503_0561Spring flowers! Not something I usually photograph, but I couldn’t help myself!

The last two Sundays, I’ve been hanging out at Marin Farmers’ Market with my camera and a 50mm 1.8 lens. Great portrait lens. Great for flower portraits!

I’ve had such fun putting them together and now I’ve got a whole new series of small canvas “Blooms” available in my studio. Poppies, roses and proteas!

















I find myself facinated by the exotic proteas which, though I’ve been a gardener for years, I had not known. These come from Gabriel Hieb who is growing them on the Sonoma coast, though they originate in South Africa.
