Photo Diary: Beauty in the Wild

This past summer was a  time of many “firsts” for myself and my family. I made it to Africa (where I have wanted to go since I was in 5th grade…I’ll talk more about this trip soon!) and my older sister Asha got married. We spent a few weeks in Upstate New York and the views were beyond gorgeous. I’m always captivated by the abundance of wild flowers by houses, fields, and even along the highway when I travel around the country (especially up in the  northern states).  There is something so “freeing” at looking at these flowers that grow where ever the wind blows them- without restraint and without concern.  My all-time favorite flowers would be the daisy and sunflower. Though more simplistic in design than other flowers (such as hydrangeas, passion vines, dahlias, etc.), I think they really embody the “free spirit” life.

I thought it would be a fun idea for me to post frequent photo diaries so that I can share some of my photography and beauty that I’ve seen. This first photo diary is of some of the flowers I saw while in New York this past summer. All photos were taken with a Canon Rebel T3i or iPhone 4s. Feel free to share these photos, but please give credit! Enjoy 🙂
