Just beauty

At the Arboretum last week, just after the crowds of Lilac Sunday (and needless to say, lilacs of all colors were still in bloom). It's such a riot of color and texture and smells but it is so tidy and kempt (that isn't a word, is it?) that it feels as though I should be wearing a starched shirt. OK, a lightly starched shirt. Or maybe just a tie...

I'm not used to shooting surrounded by such formal beauty as this.It seems to require a very different eye to see the way I usually see. Nothing wrong with beauty, don't get me wrong. I just want to find a viewpoint that moves beyond the easy perfection of glorious blooms to something a bit deeper, something that makes less obvious statements and connections. Not sure I'm there yet...
