Flowers, flowers everywhere!

The friday shoot out for this week is flowers.  Flowers, along with butterflies, almost seem to exist for photography.  They vary so greatly in colors and textures; they are like the living embodiment of joy and beauty. 

Hope you enjoyed!  I wish you all beautiful flowers!

Friday Shoot-Out: Nurses

The Friday Shoot Out this week is to honor nurses.  Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your pov!!), I have not had access to hospitals or any medical professionals in order to take photos.  So, for this shoot-out, I wanted to recognize the staff at University of Pennsylvania Veterinary Hospital who saved my cat Winston.  They are very expensive but they are worth what you pay!  The doctor was very helpful and the nursing staff were very kind.  The students studying to be vets were also quite kind.  Winston spent a week of his life there last summer.  If you want to know more, check out:

I also just noticed that in my posts about Winston, I also mention John proposing.  It is fitting because in exactly one month, we will be getting married!

Anyway, thanks to the U of Penn's Vetinary Hospital, Winston is doing well (although he does take medicine twice a day). 

 Hope you enjoyed!
