Sharleen and I also got to go see the Desert Botanical Gardens 🙂 Oh my. SO many cacti and succulents. By the way. Is it just me, or do you think desert gardens would be the EASIEST thing to upkeep? Haha.
🙂 Pretty bokeh! <3Â Gosh, I love my 85mm f/1.4 lens (/dork)
Oh my gosh. The saddest story every 🙁
Oh. Saguaro cacti arms can get really heavy (from all the stored water), so they can get wrinkly!
Love succulents. They’re so cute 🙂
We also went horseback riding at MacDonalds Ranch. But they wouldn’t let me take my DSLR on the ride. Since I don’t have a point & shoot, these photos are from after the ride, when I got to photograph some horses 🙂
🙂 The ranch also had a petting farm area, where we met this cute little guy…
Fuzzy wuzzy ears <3
Baby bunny. So adorable.
We then went to Olive + Ivy for happy hour.
Apple, walnut & stinky cheese bruschetta.
TRUFFLE FRIES. Oh my. Need them in Vancouver!
Sharleen, my light-test subject.
This is Dary! She e-mailed me after she read that I’d be in Scottsdale! We met her at Olive + Ivy for happy hour 🙂 We have a lovely chat about photography, Arizona, and fun things in general!!
On the way to Sedona!
Oooooh. Red rocks.
This one is called Bell Rock 🙂
Mesas. Since the tops were flat- like tables…
Lunch at L’Auberge 🙂
Me, holding Sharleen’s Polaroid camera. (This one didn’t work :d)
Yaay. My obligatory tourist photo 🙂
Oh goodness. This sunset was amazing. If it wasn’t for the thorny plants growing in this field, I would’ve been found rolling on the ground in sheer joy.
The red earth!
Just kidding! 🙂
Annnd that concludes my 2 week trip in 3 different states! I have been home for just over a month, and already I am itching to go traveling again. This is getting a little out of hand ;D I have one more (huge) post from Sedona coming- portraits with Sharleen! Soon, young grasshopper, soon.
