From Feathers to Blossoms

Headed out today to discover some birds. Came back with flowers instead.

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.

  1. That’s so my thoughts too, as I walk around the city with a camera in hand wherever I go, people think I’m busy texting most of the time when I’m actually picking out which photos to keep and retake 🙂

    Beautiful captures! 🙂

      • You give me too much credit 😀 I remember the days when I would have to load up the film into the camera, only to every so often find myself not closing that flap soon enough and lose 3 to 4 frames that I could of used for that one right shot, Heck I even got the camera still in my drawer lol 😀

  2. Beautiful pictures and yet difficult to take – one breath of wind and they are out of focus. I had forgotten that I had put some iris bulbs in the garden so to my delight they are now in full flower

    • Now that is the best gift ever. Sort of like finding money in the pocket of your jeans after doing the wash. Actually, I use active mode focusing and high shutter speeds to get the flowers. Also I’m now using a zoom lens versus a macro. Learned the trick from a pro flower photographer.

  3. Finally! Flowers! I’ve felt like this winter has been 2 years long. Sigh… Thanks for the flowers! I’m starting to feel like it’s spring. My time cards show it in my 53 hour weeks. Ugh.
    I do have some bird pix to post. Nothing to compare to yours, however I’m working on it!
