Sunshine Daydream

I went to the Arboretum this morning after dropping my sweetie off at work. A photographer pal had tipped me off to the start of flowering trees. It turns out the magnolias are just getting up a full bloom, with the southwest side of the tree full or fading and the northerly facing parts just starting to open. The cooler temps seem to be assisting with a lot of beauty.

I found a dead, dessicated leaf and carried it around for a couple of minutes wondering what to do with it. It seemed so much like fine lace that I hated to just walk away from it. Well there I was admiring and shooting the magnolias, and much of my recent studio work has been boudoir shoots, so I thought I would give the magnolia a chance for an indirect, conceal-reveal portrait shot. I like it!
