I’m obsessed with hydrangeas, photographically, at least. Luckily I live in an established neighborhood with lots of old gardens full of an amazing variety of hydrangeas, and since I am on good terms with most of my neighbors I can photograph their plants from spring through late fall. But once December comes and those lovely brown dry flowers blow away in the winter winds, it gets tougher to get my hydrangea picture fix.
Luckily made-up bouquets in grocery store floral departments help take up the slack. I found these blue and white hydrangeas in a Trader Joe’s in the south suburbs of Chicago, and shot them with my phone camera. All images are cropped, some to my favorite squares.
