At the house in Montauk, Amy's neighbor is Dee and she is a professional gardener. To brighten up the house and grounds she has made a garden in a number of planter boxes. I love the way she has planted them - in a conversation she said that she does "crowd" the plants, and I prefer that, instead of having each plant surrounded dirt. I don't know the first thing about garden design, but I love what she has done here. I photographed the boxes at several times over three days, and I can't decide which image is my favorite. I should tell you about the last photo - the house was owned by a long-time fishing boat captain in Montauk where he raised his family, and to this day some of the old nets and floats hang on the fence. I think this photograph has a problem - even with a long telephoto lens, both the flowers in the foreground, and the fence in the background are still both pretty sharp. I wish there was a way to make the fence more blurry. So which is your favorite photograph?
