Sara's Fave Photos Blog

Check out my new book, Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory. And welcome to Sara's Fave Photos Blog at Love That Image. My goal is to take a photo that is as compelling and beautiful as in real life, with no or minimal Photoshop work. You may copy a photo but link to lovethatimage.com. Thank you for your thoughtful comments, and thanks for visiting.

Bromeliad and slug

I took this photo because of the pretty center that looks a bit like baby bird beaks, and only realized when I reviewed the photo in my computer that there was a baby slug taking a drink!

Antique radio

In a Thai restaurant in Ballard, a Seattle neighborhood, I saw this very old radio. Do you think it still works?

Pink tulips in a field

It’s from the opposite side of the year, so maybe tulips are blooming now in Australia? In any case, a visit to my tulip archive yielded this cheerful picture.
