Just one of the gorgeous flowers currently blooming in the Conservatory at Longwood Gardens.  Handheld with the Lensbaby Velvet 56.


The tulip display at Longwood Gardens is always worth a visit.  The challenge is to come away with photos that don’t have people in them because the crowds are very large at this time of year!  I shot almost exclusively with my Lensbaby on this visit because I wanted a softer look to my images.


Wishing everyone a Happy Spring and a Happy Easter!


We are having the craziest weather!  A few weeks ago we had a snowfall of over 24″.  Last weekend, the temperatures were in the teens with wind chills below zero and drifting snow.  Today, it was 64 degrees with bright sunshine that definitely gave me a touch of spring fever!  I’m thinking ahead to flowers and macro photography!  I can’t wait!


To all husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, children and friends who are veterans….thank you!  Most especially, thank you to my dad in heaven … a very special Marine!
