Garden Gate Basket
A few years ago, when I was into shooting weddings, I was set up to shoot the bridal couple by this gate. I was going to start with some soft focus portraits, but when I got to the gate, I found this bouquet of roses that the bride's mother had so very lovingly placed there for them. I grabbed a couple of shots of this scene for myself, one sharp, and one soft focus. They were both lovely, but the soft focus one became my favourite. The scene was shot with my Maxxum 9, and my Rokkor 100mm Soft Focus portrait lens, using Fuji Reala 100 film, of course. Hope you enjoy it, as this is the time of year when I start to NEED to see some flowers again. It can start to warm up again......any time now!
