Recently I spent an afternoon in Fort Wayne, Indiana at the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory with my friend Ruth. This woman is no stranger to this blog, as you’ve probably seen her beautiful face around here many times. Typically we meet up a few times a year and spend the afternoon exploring and taking pictures together. A day with this kindred spirit is always refreshing! It leaves me feeling grateful for like minded friends that I can create and connect with. One of my favorite things about shooting with fellow photographers is our individual perspectives. We are at the same location but our eyes catch different corners and use of light. It’s fascinating to me and always inspiring! Speaking of location. This one is pure magic. That light, those colors and texture…a true gem of a spot.
