Like I've said before a quilt isn't really finished until it's been photographed, so early this morning I woke up my sweet, and a little bit sassy, quilt model and we headed out to take a gagillion photos. Well, maybe not a gagillion but for her it felt that way! Not to worry, while there are a bunch of photos in this post I promise there isn't anywhere near a gagillion. ;-) It rained just before we made it to the location so it was extra humid as you can tell by the test photo below that I took just after we arrived. My glasses always fog up the same way so it's no surprise the camera lens would do the same. A quick little wipe with the bottom of my shirt and we were good to go!
And so began our picture taking party and visual story of the colors,
curves and calm that inspired the quilt design along the Cotee River.
A little more humidity...
I just love the early morning light after a cleansing rain, everything looks so crisp and vivid.
That "looking away" model gaze...
Cute little feet that are usually flippering while mine are flopping...
Just as we were about to get back into the truck to ride over to my favorite street
of beachy houses we looked up and were treated to this rainbow...
One of the cutest little blocks in town...
You can't really see it in this picture but the weathervane
atop the house below is of a mermaid!
How cute is that?
And take a look at this one with the bicycle mounted on the siding!
This little house has all kinds of fun stuff going on!
Just around the corner from the beachy houses is beautiful Simm's Park...
Some cloud gazing.
Hey look, chickenturkeyvultureducks!
The tail end of the rain cell that passed through earlier.
Nearing the end of the visual story now...
I managed to get a bit of reflection of the quilt in a small puddle near the bottom stems of the plants in the foreground. Had I noticed that earlier I might have taken a gagillion more photos but it's a good thing I didn't because my sweet, and a little bit sassy, quilt model was pretty much done by then!
She's such a trooper!
Many, many thanks Sofia!
Thanks sew much for stopping by and following along on this little visual story!
