I started the morning and ended the day (at least daylight hours) with some picture taking. In the morning, I played the good parent and droped off my oldest son to school for his spring trip. Because drop-off was not until 9AM, I got to sleep in and still had time to take a walk around the neighborhood. I found some pink dogwoods along the way and an iris and bleeding heart in the flowerbed surrounding the the sign marking the entrance to our neighborhood. I only had the 18-55mm lens, so I want to go back with the micro lens when I get a chance. I especially want to see what I can do with the bleeding heart.
At work, I had a chance to shoot some of the kids and their parents as part of the Bring Your Child to Work Day. With my husband stuck at home, my younger son didn't come with me but stayed to give his dad some company.
Finally, I had some time during my son's appointment in Silver Spring. I didn't have to go far to find some lovely dandelions and azeleas. I got down and shot upward and ended up with mulch and dandelion seeds in my hair and on my clothes. The azeleas were easier to shoot. They are just starting to bloom so I have some time to learn how to capture them. This is, after all, a learning experience.
