March of the Daffies


Or April of the Daffies.
This is a picture of a  garden in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, maintained and funded by donation and government.
Daffodils blooming are sure – fire sign that Spring has sprung in Pennsylvania.
Another sign of Spring is the budding of the trees.
Below, the Sun Valley Maple planted in memory of my late father. It’s budding.


Thats a  honey bee in the center. He kept moving around. Apparently he didn’t want his photo to be taken!

Happy Spring!

Walking the parks, riversides, or woods… I occasionally catch myself feeling a little ridiculous. Walking, or sitting on a bench or a rock: alone or with others: “being in the moment” – ahh..that pathless path…. I spoil it by reaching for a camera. Sometimes I even make sure to set the correct digital setting to correctly filter and capture the static moment. And then I feel a little ridiculous.

I think too much.

Walking in the park with outdoor photography

{slide show moved to below}
I love walking in parks.
The smell, the green, moving creek  waters and the wind rustling through bushes. Its life outside of my human shell, I loose my skin. I’m in my backyard. I’m in everyman’s backyard.
Here I don’t need to think.
Walk , breath, observe.

…And  why the hell not bring a cheap  camera along.
