______My mom and I visited the Birmingham Botanical Gardens yesterday for some picture-taking and exploration. I hadn't been to the gardens for a few years (or with my DSLR before!) so it was definitely something I was glad to be able to cross off my to-do list before my ghastly and inevitable return to college. Even though it was so humid we felt like we were swimming through someone's armpit, it was still a super fun trip. I had lots of fun seeing things through the new perspective of a macro lens, too!
