As Spring makes way for summer, the amount of time that I have to photograph decreases, at least with respect to landscape photography. However, my long-time interest in studio work with floral subjects blossoms (pun intended). My home at Rauhallinen Farm, in addition to the local countryside, produces an abundance of wildflower subjects until first frost and beyond. Current florals have included a variety of tulips, grape hyacinth, trillium, blood root, marsh marigold, forget-me-not, and calla lily. As the studio is in the farm and my subjects close at hand, little to no travel is required.
The weekend was spent in putting out all the potted annuals (over 25) and starting the vegetable garden. Looking forward to traveling to California in July to see my newest granddaughter, Rose, who will be near seven months old at my visit. Planning on taking the Hasselblad, Rolleicord, and 4x5 pinhole, and will be there about six days.
