A Happy soon to be 4th of July to you all. I am sure that you are looking forward to a short week at work and then the weekend independence celebration. Be safe and take a moment to pause and give thanks to all of our service men and women for their service to our country.
I have spent more then my fair share of driving the roads of north Alabama over the last couple of months. A lot of that travel has taken me through Scottsboro, AL and on to Mentone, AL. Mentone is becoming my home away from home, a day destination for photography and for hanging out at Kamama Art Gallery where I am one of the many-featured artists.
While traveling back and forth I come across many photo opportunities worth pulling off on the side of the road. During this time of year, the water lilies on the lakes around Scottsboro are in full bloom and if you do not mind dodging 18-wheelers on Hwy 72 it is well worth stopping to capture the beauty.
Through the ages water lilies have been a very worthwhile subject of artists worldwide. The famous French impressionist, Claude Monet, painted over 250 painting of water lilies over the last thirty years of his life. The paintings depicted Monet’s flower garden Giverny. I am not quite sure that my photographs will live up to the legacy of Monet’s paintings that have sold for millions. But having said that, I have to think I am in pretty good company!!! ENJOY!!!!!!
Keep us in mind for any of your upcoming photographic adventures. Have Camera – Will Travel … Corporate, Advertising, Editorial and Art.
Best Regards …..
Happy 4th of JULY!
