Back in the spring of 2001, my job took me to Europe for a few weeks. My elder daughter Squiddy was studying at Wellesley College, near Boston, and I arranged to spend a day with her along the way. She showed me her favorite haunts around the campus, one of which was the glass-house horticultural area. One particular clover leaf captured my interest completely, and I resolved to see if I could capture its intricate beauty and simplicity with my first digital camera, which was about nine months old at the time.
This image has remained a personal favorite through the years, and it still can transport me back to that wonderful, warm weekend. By the way, part of my inspiration for this particular post comes from my photo-friend Cindy, who just yesterday published a wonderful post entitled “Promoting a Sense of Peace.” Here is a link to her post.
