Day 116: Springtime Photography

26 Apr

It’s been quite a while since I last actively set out to practice photography. It’s been exactly a hundred days, in fact. And when you take as much time as that between practice sessions, I don’t think you really improve. So do not expect gah!amazing photos today. But it was the first really hot day of the year and the flowers are blooming and it was really nice out so there were a lot of pretty things to look at. My subject for today was this tree in front of Grace Church, a gorgeous piece of architecture that’s been around since the 1800’s that I like to pass by on my daily walk to the office. There was a crowd of people around this tree, all taking pictures as well. See, the change from winter to spring is quite abrupt. One day a tree is absolutely devoid of foliage, then the next day it’s completely covered in flowers. So when this tree in front of this church did the whole drab-to-fab overnight change thing, people everywhere were inspired to practice photography.

i mean, look at the pretty flowers! they weren't there yesterday! this was around sunset though so it was getting dark.

And here’s a close-up shot of the petals.

With a bonus photobomber!

Which makes perfect sense, actually. It isn’t really springtime until the fairies come out to play.

So yay! Photography!

That’s all! See you tomorrow!
