When I recently took this photo at the height of the azaleas’ blooming season, the park was filled with couples young and old enjoying the romantic sights. Naturally, most of them wanted to have their pictures taken against the backdrop of the vibrant flowers. As soon as they saw me with my camera, they politely asked me if I could be of assistance. So I accidentally became the designated portrait photographer of that evening. It was a rewarding and worthwhile effort!
I have always loved the little light ‘disks’ of bokeh. This effect creates a sense of magic in photographs and reminds me of fairy tales and pixies.
