I got a visit this week that was as good as it gets. Why?
- My favorite model.
- Weather system with pretty clouds.
- Peak of superbloom.
- Catching up with my friend.
My favorite model shoots exclusively with me. She’s following another career, but does love modeling once in a while. Luckily, I’m the photographer she likes to shoot her. We always get great shots.
This winter Tucson was blessed with consistent rains. The result was a marvelous superbloom in the desert. California poppies and lupines are in bloom this week, and we had the chance to take lots of shots in the fields of flowers. We are both gardeners. No matter what they look like, no flowers were stepped on in taking these shots. That’s the down side of beautiful displays like this. They attract too many people who are not gardeners and are not careful. If you seek the flowers out, be sure to take care.
We not only went north of Tucson to the flowers, we also went south to Tubac and Tumacacori. The aged plaster walls and old architecture of Tumacacori are natural for photography. Tubac is quaint and colorful.
The pictures are fun, the visit delightful…as good as it gets.
