How about some odd shots from a trip I took to Allen Gardens in March? Ok, I didn’t go into the greenhouse, I lurked around the outside. The place was too crowded, so I stayed in the sunshine. I have a bunch of photos left over from winter shots but, in all honesty, I simply can’t stand looking at one more photo of snow and ice. They’ll have to wait until a heat wave hits and I need a bit of relief.
I wandered around the grounds for a while, taking shots of this and that, finally ending up behind the main building. When I took the photos, I was interested in the lines and structure of the building itself. I didn’t realise I had captured the people inside until I processed the images. Some of the shots are delightful snippets of random strangers among the foliage.

After I looked at these, I quickly threw them up on Instagram and then wished I’d taken more. It’s interesting that each pane tells its own micro story. I’ve looked at the settings I used and think a second trip is in order. Now that the weather has improved, I have no excuse… but I’m sure I’ll find one to justify my inertia.
