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.

Chandelier ceiling

I was at a concert by the Stamford Symphony Orchestra at the Palace Theater. The ceiling!! The chandelier was huge, perhaps eight feet across. I love old buildings and architecture.
