Lush Landscapes

Friday I shared that I have made my way to Atlanta for some rest and relaxation with the family.  I also mentioned that I find Atlanta particularly inspiring.

A lot of that inspiration is drawn from the outdoors.  The city is a very lush green environment something that I have always appreciated after spending many years in Los Angeles (aka the desert!) and now in Chicago’s urban jungle.

I wanted to share some of the images that inspire me.  These photos are taken from around my parents’ yard.  Now, to be fair, my mother has quite the green thumb and loves planting in the spring and summer, so not every yard in Atlanta has quite the varied plant life.  But, the saturated colors, the varieties of green?  Those you can find all over the city…

A little photography inspiration:

Tell me, what is inspiring you?
