Alex Morales http://365project.org/alexm555/365/2010-04-01 put together the first 365 gathering of the LA contingent, and it couldn't have been a nicer day! Though I know he was expecting more people, we were a group of four, Ken and me and Andrea http://365project.org/andybphotos/365/2010-02-03 . Alex was familiar with the gardens and took us on a wonderful tour over the course of many hours. The photo opportunities were endless, and we shared our captures as we walked along. Can't wait to meet again another day!
As soon as I said Ken & I would join the group, I had my plan in mind for today's photo. In my art room, I have a photo (it's a copy) I bought at an antiquarian book fair many years ago. I was so glad I'd written on the back what the seller told me...It's of the "Sacramento Camera Club", and unless someone can tell me otherwise, I'm guessing (from the clothing style) it was taken late in the 1800s. (The "flare" in the lower right is on the photo itself.) But isn't it just wonderful!
I lack the skills in Photoshop to make a better collage, but I love the two pictures together! I was so excited to share them with all of you!
And in case anyone would like to see some more photos...lots of flowers and a few more "people pictures", I decided to make a Shutterfly site to share with you. http://365daysintheyear.shutterfly.com/
Can you hear me humming,...What a day this has been...What a rare mood I'm in...
