Atlanta Botanical Gardens

Emily and I spend a special “daddy-daughter day” at the Botanical Gardens on Saturday .  I guess this was soon-to-be-born baby Sydney’s first photo outing, too!

It was the perfect start to a Memorial Day weekend.  Other than harsh, full sun limiting our potential photographic subjects, the weather was absolutely perfect!  We spent about 4 hours walking around enjoying nature and macro photography.  I tried my best not to wear our little mom out with too much walking.  The relaxing pace was, well, …. relaxing.

I enjoyed taking these images, particularly the irises.  I grew up with purple irises in our backyard, so these triggered great memories of home, my parents, and my childhood.
