Spring!

If you are reading this on Friday the 20th, it is officially spring in the northern hemisphere! But it has felt like spring for quite awhile now. We are being spoiled with sun this year, like I've probably told you a hundred times now. It's like finally being with a reliable guy who keeps his word after being with a bunch of flakes. I can actually count on sun and feel secure that it won't leave after five minutes. It's been so nice. Hopefully next winter doesn't make up for it. (Or this spring, for that matter!)

Like last time, I'm just going to pick a handful of images that stand out to me tonight as I go through them. I have hundreds and hundreds more to sift through for future posts. I've posted a few of these on Instagram, but you can see the original crop here.

I've continued to have an obsession with tree blossoms. I can't seem to stop taking pictures of every new type of blossom I see. It's been so fun and satisfying to practice and try new things and sometimes get photos I'm really excited about.

The other day I had my camera and decided to stop at a Jehovah's Witness church that had a bunch of beautiful trees out front. It was on a semi-busy street and I kept wondering if anyone I knew had driven by and seen me (embarrassing!).

So often I come across something and don't think much of it in terms of photography, but then I'll give it a chance and pretty soon I've taken dozens of photos and can't seem to quit. That happened with this one particular tree. The full blossoms combined with the blue sky made some nice color combos.

Sometimes I like to move the watermark around.

I came across him accidentally when I saw his blurry figure moving up a branch in the background while I was taking a photo.
Oh hello thick, fluffy blossoms all tumbling down like you're in some sort of wedding dream. I think I'll make curtains out of you.

I mixed these up so you wouldn't have to endure the same subject several times in a row, but I am sorry for a lot of similarities anyway. Kind of. :)

I loooove that spring green color that can be captured from sunlit grass or certain plants in the background. And how hot does it look with the pink?

I was at Bush Park tonight and it was so perfect. The weather was awesome, the blooms were killing me, and then the light just kept getting better and better. I was in such a good mood that I actually spoke to three different strangers at the park! It was as if I was friendly!

This caught my eye when the sun made all the little vines stand out.
Happy spring! I hope yours is full of productivity, inspiration, refreshment and fun surprises. :)
