My me-made clothes are now in the repeat phase and I'm sure boring my sweet readers, so this morning was spent on my daughter's beautiful college campus to give me an opportunity to try out different backgrounds and lighting and to *gasp* take my photos in public! She was busy with class, so my tripod and self-timer were used with the camera settings on 'Auto'. Let me tell you, it still feels strange to take photos on my own land, so I thought long and hard about taking my photos in 'public'! As it was already sweltering, ridiculously hot at 8:00 this morning and feeling a little nervous, I decided to go easy on myself and wear the oh-so-soft white unblogged Kirsten Kimono Tee with the light gray NEWLOOK 6192 elastic-waist skirt with my flip-flops. We had 92 degree temps yesterday with the same forecast for today.
Clemson University is not only home to a well-recognized academic university, (as well as a well-known football team!), but also our South Carolina Botanical Gardens, one of my most favorite places to visit. I've written about one of our visits in our family's journal. The red caboose is a landmark, of sorts, and that's where I thought I'd start.
I'm on the caboose end of the caboose with the sun directly shining on me from the front left completely washing out my already pale/white colors. Also thought this end of the caboose didn't have enough interest....
Yoshimi's beautiful garden shots, I am 'walking' by blooming Japanese Spirea. I am in the shade, the sun filtering through the trees on my left side. I tried to 'catch' a sun spot, but this still seems too shady to me. How do you get your beautiful shots Yoshimi?!
Old Stone Church, built in 1797-1802, just a few minutes away from the Botanical Gardens. Don't you just love old historical buildings and architecture?! I do!
post I wrote from one of our earlier visits, with many photographs and an essay I wrote about Eliza Huger, the subject of legend and folklore, who is buried in the cemetery.
