summer / everything's coming up daisies


solo post  but with her image, L - Nikon / T - Nikon

The other day I told you that T asked me to get her permission before posting an image from our photo shoot. Well out of all of them, she approved this one and 2 others – all in the series with the daisies. I love them. She took the photo of the daisies then she went to pick one and put it in her hair – I snapped some photos. Doesn't it say summer – a sundress and a daisies? For me the flower that epitomizes summer is a daisy – their sunny center and pure white petals dancing in the breeze speak of freshness and a free-spirit. Remember the innocent game as a young girl? summer love at camp - he loves me, he loves me not... Well she's no longer the innocent age of twelve but she does have a free spirit that can be refreshing. / these are not her words but what we remembered together.  The last time we were here was to shoot photos for our friend's music CD. The concept included an umbrella. We were getting some great photos, cool shadow images on the white wall and then I saw it – a drawing on the concrete. The drawing was of an umbrella and childlike sun. There happened to be a puddle and some leaves, too. What a fluke! T shot a photo and we used it in the CD package.

T is such a beautiful model! I'm glad she approved some of the photos for us to see! I agree, daisies are such a symbol of summer. I love both of these shots!

daisies are young children flowers for sure. that and the beloved dandelion, which i don't hate, unlike the rest of the world.

lovely. daisies convey as much of a mood of free spiritedness as they do love. i love the simplicity of them. my sister used to collect anything daisy. whenever i would see a greeting card with one, i would buy it and give it to her. she must have hundreds. she did the same for me with irises.

This is a great di. Yes, daisy's definitely are a flower of summer.

The combination of the fresh, new daisies and the old, peeling wall has me gasping with delight. This one should definitely go in the Etsy shop.

Today, please.
