Watching photogs at the Dallas Arboretum
The Dallas Arboretum is certainly a photog hot spot. The beautiful grounds, unique features and events are hard to beat for pretty pictures. It can get crowded, but if you are willing to wait your turn in some of the displays, good photos are going to happen. Or go on a week day.
Of course, the flowers are beautiful and all of that, but I have more fun watching all of the people taking pictures. Almost everyone in the place has a camera, and that ranges from kids snapping at everything to professionals making portraits of both people and plants.
Part of the fun is just seeing what other people are doing and seeing...
Or just enjoying the human race as entertainment.
Finally, it is refreshing to see so many people enjoying photography as a fun meaningful and personal thing. Looking back through Renee's scrapbooks, it is amazing how much of our memory is dependent on what we have recorded.
OK, one for those very scrapbooks...
The Arboretum is very photographer friendly. You do have to pay to get in, but there are no restrictions for pros or amateurs shooting portraits etc. The photo info page is here.
