While I was in France in May, I visited Monet’s gardens in Giverny. Before I went I was hoping to see some early spring flowers and then use my imagination as to what the gardens might look like in full bloom. To my surprise and delight, there were flowers in bloom everywhere! I literally felt like a fashion photographer, one that continuously snaps photos in pursuit of the perfect shot. But in my case, I have to say it would have been difficult to take a bad picture of such a beautiful scene.
