Booth Bee!

At Art in the Square (which really wasn’t in the square…got Covidmoved) in Fort Collins, the booth to my west was occupied by a woman called Michelle. She creates really super dresses (and fabric and who knows what else??) out of natural materials, dyes, etc. Check out her stuff at www.livinganddyeing.com. I don’t have the legs for it, but I’ll bet you’d find something that you’d love.

Anyway… On Saturday morning before the first show, she’d cut some wildflowers in her yard and brought them to her booth in a vase. The fresh-cut flowers attracted all kinds of bees – so being who I am, I grabbed my camera and started clicking. I printed this one overnight and gave her a copy on Sunday morning. Neat shot. Neat effect. Like it lots:

Apocryphally (I didn’t hear it myself), another photographer mentioned that he drives halfway across the country to shoot a landscape – and the bee guy just wanders over to the next booth… Made me smile ;).

Fun that I can fall down my front steps, camera in hand, and land amid flowers and bees.
