One of my favorite scenes to capture in the town of Mendocino. It was a gorgeous warm afternoon last Thursday. I first celebrated a birthday in Mendocino almost 20 years ago; it has become a special destination ever since. I love the architecture of the homes; most were built in the late 1800s; the town is so picturesque perched along the cliff looking out to the grand Pacific Ocean.
One of my rhododendrons has decided now is the time to bloom! With the drought in California, I am not sure if it is just confused or a fall bloomer. I also have a redbud with a few blooms on it. Whether in season or out, flowers are always welcome in my garden! For Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds, http://kimklassen.com/friday-finds-bella-grace/
I used two of Kim’s textures, one was “empty page”, the other I have named kk1; I think it’s name got removed when moving files around one time. I also used two of Kim’s Lightroom Presets- Classic Warm 2, and Days of Old. I also added a couple of RadLab filters as well. I am enjoying shooting very simple layouts; I used a scarf I own plus a wheelbarrow that has a found bird nest and a ceramic bird. Effortless composition!
