Finding Friends ~ Doing what we enjoy

There is always plenty of talk about finding like minded friends.  It is easier for some especially if you live in an area where others love the same as you.  Even if you don't and have had the chance to go to photography workshops and found those friends.  This was the case for Carol Hart and Terri Porter and myself.  As we met at Shutter Sisters and found that connection and also Gather.  So good....  This is the last of my series of our get together at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix. It was a near perfect day, the best I have had from many visits to the Gardens.  The weather here can be harsh and believe you me you don't want to be there when it is in the 90's or even high 80's.  For the last of April we had an unusual weather pattern of cool, beautiful clouds with some overcast which makes for a wonderful experience. So this was my day a couple of weeks ago. All were shot with my Lensbaby as I needed a light lens for walking around because of my continued back issues.  I don't know why we think we need to take a lot of lens to have a good time because we don't?
