Digging photo in Fresh Home magazine


If you happen to pick up the Summer 2010 issue of Fresh Home magazine, and if you happen to turn to page 79 as you read the article “The Magic of Motion”…


…you’ll see one of my photographs, an image of a rill and pool from Chanticleer Garden, which appeared here at Digging in 2008. I’m delighted that Fresh Home chose to use it to illustrate their story about movement—water and fire—in the garden.


Here is the image as I originally published it, and you can find the post about my visit to Chanticleer here as well.

    Wow, Congrats upon being published Pam. I will look for this magazine. I have never heard of it.

    Fresh Home is a fairly new shelter magazine by the Reader’s Digest Association, Lisa. This is only the 6th issue. —Pam

    Beauiful photo Pam. You deserved to be published. However I much prefer the way you cropped the photo vs the way they did it. You have a great eye for composition!

    I also prefer your version, where the reflection is meaningful, and the palms aren’t having a bad hair day.

  15. Congrats on the publication! It’s a great photo of a striking water feature. I can see the little rills even in the still photo and I’m sure it’s even cooler in person.

    Congratulations, Pam. I love your pictures, and its only natural that they would want to use yours for the magazine. I’m not sure whether your forte is gardening or photography…nah, both.
