Center Stage (photo)

I've been culling photos today and organizing them. OK, Lightroom (my editing/cataloging software) has been doing the heavy hitting in the organizing aspect. I LOVE Smart Collections! I also love that I can any one of my nearly 12,000 photos in less than 30 seconds.

I happily rediscovered this macro photo and thought I'd share. :)

Floral Friday (photo)

This is one of my favorite images thus far taken of my neighbors tulip tree. I have been slipping into their yard (with permission!) nearly every day to take shots. This photo was taken during the only 5 or so minute period when early morning light touched the tree in the last week. We've had cloudy mornings ever since and I'm ready for less clouds and more light!

Floral Friday (photo)

I have been eyeing this tree in my neighbors yard for the last few days - looking longingly out my window watching the blossoms open higher up on the tree and slowly unfold towards the ground. There are many of these trees in my neighborhood that are blooming and, happily, this tree is one with the richest color which I'm quite drawn to. It also happens to have low hanging branches which is perfect considering my... uhhh...lack of height. :)

I was finally able to connect with my neighbors today and beg ask for permission to stand in their front yard and photograph their tree. As it turns out they had entertained thoughts of taking some pictures for themselves as they love it.  I happily told them I'd pass along the good photos. It's a win/win!
