So this evening I decided to go through and edit some photos I took last month from my day trip to Filoli Gardens and I found myself appreciating the beauty of this wonderful place all over again. If you have never been, you should definitely make the trip. I have lived in California for 20 years and I am kicking myself for not visiting this gorgeous mansion and gardens sooner.
Anyway, that day I had so much fun shooting flowers from all sorts of different angles. I'm sure the other tourists were wondering who the crazy lady was sprawled out on the ground taking pictures of flowers up towards the sky. Or why without even looking through the lens, I would hold my camera at hip height and snap photos. I was having a great time experimenting and the big lesson learned was changing your perspective can lead to very interesting photos.
Here are just a few of my favorites from the day......
