This past weekend was beautiful in Chicago with hints of Fall at every turn. I visited the Chicago Botanic Gardens with some friends and really wanted to enjoy the day without a focus on photography.
I couldn't help myself in the cactus gardens. The symmetry in cactus design always catches my attention and I took my iPhone out for a few shots. I used Camera+ to add a quick correction filter, frame and caption text. I love how having a good quality camera phone in your pocket allows for instant creative exploration.
