garden : better together



Purple & Yellow

Hi Everyone -

I'm drawn to symmetry. I try to be all asymmetrical like my Mom, but it's not my instinct. Even in odd numbers there should be balance. I blame it on being a Libra, which is represented by the sign of the Scales. I also blame my inability to make a decision on the same thing ;).

In photography, I love the challenge of trying to find the common theme that ties two images together to make a pair. I don't set out to do so, it just happens if I'm lucky. These photos are from our recent visit to Wave Hill. It was overcast, but bright. Since there is no glare from the sun it's actually a good time to take photos, unless you're looking for blue sky shots. My favorite pair is contained in the very last photo.

We're going to get a head start on the long weekend even though we have no plans. How about you? Any suggestions? Hope it's great!

xo, Cindy

PS There's another pair here.

charlie is 6'3" while scott 6' even. i think scott has more junk in his trunk, which makes him look taller ;). not that anyone asked, i'm just sayin'.

Have a golden, long and safe holiday weekend!

Oh, Cindy... I love all these pics (and the weather) - especially the pinks after your P.S. But I must agree - my fave is definitely Daddy Long Legs + One :) The composition itself is great, but the content is too adorable for words :)
