hearts on their sleeves, the
eager magnolias feel
the bruise of hard frost

In the Light – Queen Magnolia at Dusk – St. Louis, Missouri

One of the disadvantages of having a lovely magnolia in my yard is that I have not had as much motivation to get out and photograph all the other lovely ones thought the city, and there are a lot of them!

Also, I normally present my images in the order in which they were shot, as I do here. There are 14 shots in this post, and I think it would really behoove you to make sure you check out the latter ones, as there are some lovely light-filled ones, rather in contrast to my normal beauty within the dimness approach ­čÖé Enjoy.
