A week ago I picked up my granddaughter, Emily, to go on a photo shoot at the Frederik Meijer Garden in Grand Rapids Michigan. They opened the Japanese garden this year and we wanted to check it out through a lens.
Emily hadn’t asked to borrow her mother’s camera so she used mine. It turned out to be a good move because it allowed me to just enjoy the garden – something I don’t do often because I am having so much fun capturing what I see. Is there a lesson somewhere in that last sentence?
Emily is discovering that she enjoys photography and is taking another course in high school this year. She is hoping some of the 265 photos she took will be good material for her classroom learning. It was exciting to see her work and as we talked we discovered that we both like a lot of the same subjects. We both love macro.
Emily took the opening photo for this post and I only decreased exposure a little. She has a good eye, doesn’t she. You can see another of her photographs in my Silent Sunday post
