Last Monday a small group of us gathered at San Diego Botanical Gardens for a little informal photo shoot, followed by a group lunch after the morning's activities.  My photographer friend and teacher, Carol Leigh and her husband were visiting from Oregon, and we were joined by some friends and former students of Carol's,  affectionately known as the "Carolites."

This was my first time at the gardens, and I was only able to see a small part of it, but my friend (and fellow Carolite) Judy says the bamboo section is her absolute favorite, so that's at the top of the list for next time.  For now, here are a couple of photos from this trip.

How weird, I never thought of rotating the anthurium. Duh! It certainly makes sense though, doesn't it?

Love these,CJ, especially the first one! Great lighting, nice soft BG and very complimentary colors...and yes, the rim lighting is beautiful. Nicely done...

My favorite is your first one. Love the background, the perfectly vertical element, and then the swoopitude of the left part. Especially like the rim lighting and how it makes the stalk (?) really stand out from the background.

Same thing with the anthurium ... It's luscious. What if you were to rotate it 90 degrees to the right so that it's vertical? That's how we usually see those plants... Worth doing because your photo is terrific.

You should be pleased with all of these ... I sure would be, especially your first one.
