Before leaving the north end of the Gardens, we decided to take some photos in the historic rose garden amongst the scented heritage roses. Miss Milla Cherry’s dress was a perfect match for the blooms, which was quite nice. By this time of the afternoon, the sun was starting to shine in our eyes, so keeping them open for the shots became a matter to concentrate on!
We then jumped in our cars and headed to the other end of the Botanical Gardens – it was still far too hot and humid to walk that far in high heels! Our first port of call was the stylish Pagoda and Chinese gateway in the Friendship Garden.
With the creek running behind us and ducks and turtles watching our every move, we took a series of photos in the very welcome shade of the Pagoda before moving to the striking Gateway.
For our final two scenes, we moved to the highset Rotunda above the lawn, then to the grassy bank beside the creek, in the shade of the paperbark trees.
The creekside photos were taken with the idea of trying out some different angles and taking advantage of the colour and texture contrast of the vivid green grass, the white granite, and our colourful dresses.
By now it was late afternoon and time to pack up and say goodbye. It was a fun afternoon, and we can’t wait to meet up again to take some snaps of new dresses at the seaside.
