Rock City Gardens

Saturday I spent the morning photographing more flowers at Rock City Garden Center in Vero Beach. It is a beautiful garden center with tons of ground to cover and a huge variety of plants. The colors were amazing so I had a hard time directing my attention to one thing at a time. I will definitely go back and play some more! After the garden, I went to Gallery 14 to check out the Vero Beach Highschool exhibit. There are definitely a few budding photographers in the group. I also went to the AE Backus juried Photography Exhibit. It was interesting to see that the photos were judged more on subject matter but there were definitely some winners who inspired me.
I've also included a couple bridge shots from our trip up north to see the shuttle launch. Unfortunately we didn't get close enough to the launch area for me to catch any more than an orange streak. So I directed my attention toward something that interested me more.

Busy Bee Garden Center

Saturday morning the group went to Busy Bee Garden Center in Vero Beach. It was the perfect place to shoot for the May photo challenge, flowers. 20 of us spread out among the pots, flowers, and trees to capture the beautiful colors of nature. An added effect was the sprinklers watering all the plants left water droplets on the plants that sparkled in the sunlight. The staff at the garden center were very friendly and enjoyed our company. I will definitely be back!
A couple of us ventured over to The Jungle Trail/Pelican Island to scope the area out for future shoots. We found a pond with White Pelicans and Roseate Spoonbills. The spoonbills are pink like flamingos which makes for beautiful photos.

Snap! Orlando

Four of my photography friends and I traveled to Orlando on Saturday for the Snap! Orlando Exhibit. It took place in an office building that was still under construction. The industrial, unfinished 5th floor made for an interesting gallery space and the panoramic views of Orlando were beautiful. It was a mish mosh of various photographer's works and live performance art. The most interesting photography exhibit was the Murder City Project by Barry Kirsch. Each photograph was a murder scene with a watch showing the time of the murder which was also the title of the work. The purpose was to show that crime impacts everyone regardless of status, religion, age, and sex. In the midst of the exhibits was a posing "statue" woman and a fashion show. All in all it was a fun experience to see all the different photography exhibits together in a modern urban setting.
