After The Rain

Just time for a couple of shots with the Nikon D5000 and 18-200mm lens... ASA 200, 5.6 at 500th or 250th.

Flocks of Flocks

There is so much shade in my backyard that no flowers will grow except right by the patio where the sun still reaches most of the day. Tall-stalk flocks love it, are pretty much indestructible and bloom for almost a month. All kinds of flying critters visit.... I'll have some photos of them later. These were taken with the Nikon 105mm macro and 70-200mm zoom with Cannon macro filter.

More From Kauffman

Had an engagement session in Kauffman Gardens last night. Although it was a tad cool, the lighting was wonderful... cloudy is sometimes good. Great couple, getting married in August in Ransom, Kansas... I will enjoy the trip. Before they arrived I grabbed some snaps. The roses are peaking now.

This is Princess... in house security for all things Kauffman. Very friendly, staff adopted.

Kauffman Blooms

Visited Kauffman Gardens today to do some senior pictures... but before Katie arrived I roamed around and enjoyed the scenery. The roses are just ready to open and should be gorgeous next week. If you have some spare time... visit... 4801 Rockhill Road.... just east of the Plaza and South from the Nelson Gallery... and it's free. Extremely well maintained.

Cherry Blossom Festival

I'm lucky to have a cherry tree in the backyard. It was a volunteer in that it just popped up from the roots of an older tree that is long gone. It didn't really pick the best place to grow as it's heavily shaded by a nearby catalpa and huge cottonwood that is directly overhead. Thus it has some blooms but few cherries. None-the-less it is a pretty tree and seems otherwise happy.
