Secret Hiding Place

Longwood Gardens
Pennsylvania, September 2009

The last time I went to Longwood Gardens, I left my zoom at home. I forced myself to work with my 50mm prime and my Lens Baby to take more landscape shots. It is so tempting to just work with macros in a place like this. The beautiful flower buds are just calling for macros, but I wanted to push myself to do something different.

That is when, towards the end of my stay there, that I came across this beautiful spot. What a lush, inviting, quiet place to sit and think. Or take pictures ;0)

As for yesterday, my visit to Johns Hopkins was an eye opening experience for sure. There were people from every walk of life on campus with every illness in the book. It was a bit overwhelming to be in the midst of this ant-hill like activity. Buzz, buzz, buzz everywhere.

After 4 1/2 hours there I was finally given a clean bill of health for the time being. If I ever have an allergic reaction again where my eosinophils go that high, they do want to see me again, but until then...I am good. So, that is a relief for sure!

Weigh In: Do you have a favorite place to sit and be quiet? Tell us about it!
