oh hello, spring

what with the beautiful day that turned out to be way more gorgeous than the weathermen said, i felt impelled to step outside and enjoy the beautiful afternoon air! everything is starting to poke their tiny green heads out of the ground, and the air has that lovely balmy feel to it, that just surrounds your body like a comforting blanket.

i started out with a plan of just snapping the crocuses, but soon found myself wandering aimlessly around the garden and backyard, shooting here and there, even finding the minute beauty in a few dead-looking black-eyed susans from last season, with their tiny brown seed pods spiraling into a Fibonacci-like pattern.

so here are the photos for today:


around the house

I've been reading lots of blogs right now and have been inspired. I'm trying very hard to make it out of the dark tunnel of no pictures!! So yesterday I took out the Rebel and shot a few frames around the old homestead. Here are some of my winners:

 "Life in Miniature"

"Stuck Inside"


rocky crag

I guess this post title is a bit redundant, since the definition of crag is a rugged rock or cliff, and all cliffs are probably made of rock. So hence, redundancy. Don't you just love dictionaries?

Do you have any goals for the new month? My goal for April is to get out of the photo slump that I've been in the last few months and start taking more photographs. I have been admiring a whole lot of photos lately, you can catch a brief glimpse of them on my Pinterest board: http://pinterest.com/aucilater/photography/

I just love looking at beautiful images. One of my favorite photographers is Alfred Eisenstaedt. He captured so many beautiful, yet candid shots. Check out his work if you haven't already. You'll thank me later. But I'm sure you've already seen some of his work.

Anyhow, today's pic of the day.
