It’s Beautiful Everywhere

One great thing about spring in Virginia is how pretty it is everywhere. I thought I’d show you what I see as I’m driving around! A word of warning though – these are not drop dead gorgeous shots. They can’t be. The locations are bad and on the days I shot these, so was the…

Anatomy of Spring

Spring arrived this week in central Virginia, bringing a different gift each day.  Seeing robins shivering in snow is a sign of spring, but it isn’t really spring yet until the trees have leaves on them!  Change has finally come, which is also this week’s photo challenge.

I noticed the pretty smell when I walked past this.  It smells like lilacs and looks like lilacs, but I forgot to ask if that’s what it was. The pussy…

Bye To Winter

Earlier this year, I started taking daily photos.  It was a challenge for me to find something every day to photograph.  The various articles that I’d read (see the sidebar for links) encouraged it as a way to increase creativity, improve photo technique, and at the end of the year, have a visual diary of…
