I know this is off-topic, but our lilac trees are blooming and I couldn’t resist some photos. (And it was a good excuse to break out my Zeiss lens which I use less often. Such pretty bokeh!) Our trees have not always produced a full crop of lilacs but they are bursting with them this year. Wish I could package the smell and post it here too…glorious.
Lilacs mean spring is really here, at least in the Northeast.So do the flowering trees.
And so do these little darlings, all over the lawns.
Can’t forget the dandelions. Happy spring!
Pardon my completely off-topic (not animal related) post, but these logs have called to me many times while out walking Bodhi. There used to be a bunch of trees in this field and they were all recently chopped down. I don’t know if there was a tree-illness going around or what, but this is all that remains of the trees.
“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst,” said famous French photographer Henri Cartier-Breeson. I haven’t counted my photos, but I’m pretty sure I’m well within the 10,000 goal.
My challenge to myself is to get out of my comfort zone and try some new things, try to see differently. It so often seems there’s nothing to photograph, but I suspect that isn’t true. It is just a question of looking deeper.
Off I went on a walk in my neighborhood today to see what I could find. The photos are no great shakes, but at least I’ve knocked off a few more of the 10,000.
(A little feral I encountered, ear tipped I will note! This black cat hangs out in the cemetery as well. Seems appropriate.)
And don’t forget to vote for our kitties one last time today. Thank you for putting up with my harangues all week! Winners will be announced on Tuesday.
It was cold and wet today, dreary light. So no way to work inside with natural light…there wasn’t much! But a challenge is a challenge, so out I went into what little light there was. To find some raindrops. People walking their dogs thought I was a little crazy out there in the cold photographing raindrops…oh well!
