The air smells

like perfume. Not the icky kind that makes you gag and run to the water fountain because your throat is closing up. Fresh, clean, all natural perfume. *sigh* The sky was a magnificent blue today and the blossoms that have opened up everywhere this weekend make my neighborhood look truly magical. It would be a lot more special if the temperature rose above 50 degrees…but I’ll take what I’ve got.

I took my 28-200 lens outside today in the freezing wind to try and get some good shots of the flowers. These are not as sharp as I would have liked, but the branches were whipping around like crazy while I was shooting…so I’m just happy they came out as good as they did. Just experimenting and learning as I go. =)
