|- : As the weather warms up, people start spending more time outdoors. A stroll through campus on any given sunny day means people lounging on the grass, reading, studying, or simply soaking the rays.
WalMart happened to have some flowers on clearance when I went last night, so I picked up a package. In the early afternoon, I set out with flowers and camera in hand. The following pictures are the results of the endeavor.
I found that the more spontaneous, the better the pictures. I went out of my way to get pictures of a few friends with flowers, and it simply didn't work as well. I gave Merry and Geneil each a rose last night, and then I went back today asking if I could photograph them with the rose. I asked Nubia to participate, and she insisted on waiting until she was "more presentable." In all three cases, the girl had too much time to adapt to the surprise of getting a flower, and so the pictures are missing that extra glow. These three pictures will be included with a future random batch of pictures.
