Bluebonnet Park Part One

Every year I have one photography goal... to get pictures of the kids at the Bluebonnet park.  This isn't an easy accomplishment because you pretty much have to stalk the park.  The bluebonnets are roped off with signs reading "Stay Off Bluebonnets" until they have reached their peak.  So on a regular basis, I drive by to see if the ropes have come down yet.  Once they come down it takes no time before every mom, dad, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, friend and random person with a camera stomps through the bluebonnets with their kids trying to capture the perfect photo and I count myself among that crowd.  In no time at all, the once roped off and spectacular bluebonnets begin looking a little sad...

But, I stalked the bluebonnets and within a day of the ropes coming down I was ready with camera in hand....  Here is yet another year at the bluebonnet park (Part One)...
