Eek. A picture of me (by Vincent). Crouching in the bluebell woods at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, beside my picture of the woods, taken in May.
The 2012 BBG calendar is gorgeous. On Saturday we received goody bags of calendars, and toured the garden looking at each month, in situ. The images are for the most part intimate views of the garden, and a beautifully curated selection. Apparently over 4,000 entries were received, and choosing just 12 could not have been easy.
The winning pictures were taken by cameras ranging from humble point and shoots to some heavy hitters.
Which really proves that expensive equipment does not make you a good photographer, although there's no arguing that excellent lenses will make a good photographer better (insert envious grinding of teeth, here)...
For the most part, it's what you see, and how you see it, that matters.
For the list of photographers and more about the day see Chris Kreussling's post at Flatbush Gardener.
I have eight 2012 calendars to give away - let me know if you'd like one!
