My Favorite Pictures

This is an attempt to pare down the number of my favorite photographs to something more manageable. These are the favorites of my favorites. Don’t ask me what makes a picture an all-time favorite. I might really like the picture, it might hold a special memory, or who knows…

When I noticed the sunlight dappling the flower I decided to take the picture, no matter how twee hibiscus flower pictures are. Thinking about it; for a better shot I should have got the sunlight in the background behind the stamen.

I recently visited a friend who is converting a barn on their property into a wedding and event venue. While I was there I took a few pictures. This is probably an unrepeatable picture, as very shortly the clear pane is going to be replaced with frosted glass. Their website: www.storybookbarnmo.com
