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.

Bouquet of cosmos and dahlias

The cosmos reseed most years and the dahlias come back, too. Lucky me!

This spiky dahlia is almost prettier from the back. So vigorous and healthy!

Red grapes harvest

Our red table-grape vine has been in the ground two or three years now. This year, with the warm weather, the vine has earned its keep. Side note: These grapes appear to be Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015, Marsala.

Most of the seedless grapes picked today. So sweet!

Pink anthurium

These shiny tropical flowers, really bracts, are so pretty and much easier to photograph than matte flowers. Anthuriums are also called “sweetheart flowers” and “little boy flowers.” Must be the heart shape, right?

Yellow brugmansia

Went to fun Oktoberfest at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory and really loved the evening lighting on the blooming, heavenly scented flowers. No wonder they call them Angel’s Trumpets!

Maple leaves in autumn

The day after a good wind is a fine thing for leaf hounds. Freshly fallen leaves are so colorful!

Driftwood on the beach

Someone built this structure out of driftwood at Richmond Beach in Washington. Almost looks like a dinosaur skeleton, doesn’t it?

Perhaps a fort, made of driftwood on the beach
