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.

Deck with flowers

My friend Cindy has a fabulous garden and her deck is just amazing. This is just a tiny area of it! The time, money, effort, and knowledge she puts into her entire place really shows.
