I am starting to miss the warm sun and green landscapes. When I step outside, all I see are barren trees, brown grass, brown mud, brown snow... and it's cold. But I still need practice and maybe a little bit of inspiration. Earlier last month I asked an old friend if she'd let me snap a few photos of her so I could get just that. I spun my wheels for a while on a location, but ultimately landed on Lauritzen Gardens. Green foliage, flowers, and EIGHTY DEGREE TEMPERATURES INSIDE!!! In the winter! Unfortunately, everyone seemed to have the very same idea, so we had to battle crowds of kids trying to get a look at lego sculptures. Worth it.
