Blossoms

Simple elegance

Last year, I went crazy and took a ton of pictures of the Cherry Blossom Festival. This year, I went a bit minimalist and focused on the blossoms themselves and the people visiting our fair city. Here are just a couple of examples of the beauty to be had in Washington in the springtime. Click on the images to enlarge them and see their detail and elegance.

============================================= (that's from Smokey the cat - I think he likes it too)
And I love your photos of the phenomenal blossoms. Can't get enough of them.

Lucy: You're here??? When are you leaving? Would love to get together if possible before I hit the road. I'll email you and Alice.


Tash: Bless Smokey! Hey, is your son in town? Glad you like the pictures of the blossoms.

Still time to photograph the first beaver kits of spring -- they won't leave the lodge until May or June.

They are all great shots but that first shot is gorgeous. Ethereal. Surreal.

Nessa: Thanks!


Mike: Where are the beavers?


GIL: Thank you! I really like the first one, too.

Gorgeous, all of them! But the Blossoms in Bokeh is superb! Well, at least you'll be moving after the blossom.

Okay, I have to say Spring Time beauty is an awesome combination of color and setting.
