Snapper Shots III (Selby Gardens)



Typical Shots



Snapper Shots... she is painting the trees (well, she is painting a painting of the trees) in the first two photos. I asked about the umbrellas, since it was shading the painting and not her,  she said it filters the light. OOPS! Duh! moment...


Why do the signs that say "Slow Children" have a picture of a running child?
 
Snapper Shot Just Because.

Did Noah keep his bees in ArcHives?

I could watch her paint for hours artists fascinate me.
I love those trees, with the roots and all.

Oh WOW! Sandra these are awesome. I love the one of the painter where you can see her painting as well. What a beautiful shot! And the one of the kids playing in the grass made me smile!

The trees remind me of Mexico. And that is ALWAYS a great thing! :oD

I wish I could paint - another thing I want to do and it just doesn't come out of me!

I love the arts - but they don't love me! teehee

The garden is nice - where is it?

Boy, you don't see trees like that up north. I wonder if lots of small wildlife just love all the hiding places in those roots. Nice shots Sandra.

LC said...

Especially loved those tree shots and the artist with trees and people in background. What kind of trees?

Your "just because" moments always give me a smile. I wonder those things too. Great shots and I love the kiddos seated on the ground.

Fantastic trees, and good shots of the painter with the umbrella! I can almost feel the warmth of the sun from these pictures...

Ginny said...

Love the trees, and the action you have shown around them! Are they banyon trees?? Go ahead and laugh, I'm probably wrong, but I know the banyons are really different looking, kind of like these.

You know that the first shot is my favorite. I've decided that the trunks look like elephant legs.

Mama-Bug said...

Great shots Sandra, my favorite is the photo of the little girls on the grass. They are totally immersed in what they are doing.

Madeline said...

Love the trees. Is that the same one you took pics of before or a different one? They are so unique.

Remington said...

Big smile! Thank you! I love the pics....

Love the feet on those big old trees!! We should all be grounded like that (lol)..the kido's are soo cute and the leaves are beautiful! What a perfect spot to sit and paint..great captures my dear!

Ann said...

Just look at those fabulous trees. If I could paint I would want to paint those. I've always been fascinated watching someone paint. I wish I could work that kind of magic with a brush.

so good to come here and see the sun ...

George said...

Those trees in the first two pictures are very impressive. I like your pictures. I also like the picture of the two children in the grass.

I have seen a woman doing the same thing at our botanical garden. It is fascinating to watch.

Photographing the painter, great shots. I do miss the trees of your area sometimes, the banyan and mangroves with their strange shapes.

Such interesting tree trunks...
