What a great holiday weekend! I got to visit with several friends that I don't see nearly enough, spend time with my family, and, yes, even get in some holiday shopping!
My daughter and I had a fun outing on Saturday: a "photo safari" to Echter's Garden Center. We each took our digital cameras and meandered through the store taking pictures of flowers and holiday decor. They even have an area set up specifically for use as a family photo backdrop! As amateurs working in low light (it was late afternoon) and without tripods, we got our share of blurry images. All of those little fairy lights and sales tags were a challenge, too!
This photo of an orchid was one of my successes.
