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.

I’m going away for a few days, to some sunshine and perhaps some flowers. While I am gone, I’ve scheduled a few flower photos all taken at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show, beginning in Seattle quite soon. Enjoy the flowers!

White hellebore with blush

Hellebores are so welcome in winter. Their simplicity is so lovely, even from the back.

Table and chair shadows two ways

The other day it was sunny and the local Starbucks’ outdoor furniture looked like music to me, somehow.

Puget Sound vista

This southern view of Puget Sound and Vashon Island was taken around the block from my house. Even a little time looking at the sky is a good thing on a clear day, especially.

Feeding seagulls

The other day in Mukilteo, WA, near the ferry dock, a very scenic group of seagulls. Isn’t it cute the way the ones on the ground are watching her, all ready?

Mary statue and votive

I was at a funeral for a neighbor’s father. It was a lovely ceremony and very moving. The church had a beautiful niche on the side for the Virgin Mary. I lit a candle.
