AU & NZ - flora and fauna
I need to insert some pictures of the flowers I've been taking. In both Australia and New Zealand, we've visited botanical gardens as well as parks and local gardens that have some amazing flowers. I'm not much of a flower or plant person but I certainly admire their beauty. Maybe it's just traveling and being in a new place but I've become hyper-aware of the beauty of my surroundings, especially here in New Zealand and want to document some of that beauty.
One of the ladies on the trip, Eileen, got me started on taking pictures of the flora and fauna. Eileen said what she does with the pictures is print them out on notecard paper stock and use them as notecards. Coincidentally, she and I even have the same camera so when I started taking closeups of some of the flowers, I liked how they turned out. I don't know if I'll follow Eileen's lead in making up notecards with the pictures but I like looking at them and remembering how pretty the real things are.
