My inspiration came during a photo trip to Elizabeth Park in Hartford, CT. The rose gardens were full of blooms, but nothing excited me until we came to the small pond with it's beautiful stone bridge. It really felt like an 'enchanted' area with it's ducks floating around and a Heron in the area as well. When the sun shone across onto to piece of grass across the other side, I quickly took some photos.
Many happy memories were made in this park as couples have taken their wedding pictures in the gardens and on the bridge. I have seen photos of my parents with my aunts and uncles posing amongst the flower gardens in their wedding party garb. It is a much loved and beautiful park.
