the most wonderful time of the year.

this year, i mustered the courage and patience to visit the tidal basin cherry blossoms three separate times — a few days early, sunset at peak-bloom, and for a sunrise (ass-kicking) workout.  there were tourists aplenty all three times, but the trees are so beautiful and truly live up to the hype, so the flailing elbows and fanny-packs cruising through your shot are worth it.

if it were possible to predict their bloom time more than a few weeks in advance, i’d fly out all my family and friends just to see them.  it is a cotton candy dreamland!

lensbaby(love).

slowly but surely, i am getting the hang of this new toy.  i chose a basic subject (a park) for my real stab at it.  the lensbaby gives photos an almost dream-like quality — i especially love the blurred and muted light effects.  stay tuned for more!
