    Yesterday we were invited to a friend's house for a cookout. Their home is modest but the backyard is beautifully kept, comfortable and full of bright colorful flowers and little hidden details. I was happy I brought along my NEX-7 and Sony Zeiss 24mm 1.8.

    this guy was playful and happy to see us.

    Looks like a great time was had by all.

    I can't wait till our backyard grass is that green again.
    Maybe this winter if the El Nino really happens like they say it will.

    Great shots of you guys having a great time! That 2nd flower shot is tops. I like the little details decorating the yard like the fleur de lis sprayed on the planter.
