This is my first decent picture with the new camera, and even it leaves a bit to be desired. No, I don't blame the camera--I only know how to use the automatic right now. I have a lot to learn with this camera, which I'm looking forward to. Still, compared to yesterday's very first picture, this is grand. I already feel more comfortable holding the camera, and at least I'm not afraid to pick it up, as I was yesterday. Baby steps...

I liked the repetition of the lines from the window reflected both on the wall of the stairwell and then again on the picture in the hall.

I took many pictures of these tulips, but this is one of the splashiest.

This morning, light poured in a side window, illuminating the blossoms but not the wall behind them. When the sun hit them, my tulips popped open showing their yellow centers.

blossoms everywhere

I dearly love spring and spring flowers. Yesterday at lunch I took dozens of pictures of a local magnolia tree. This picture gave the best sense of the sheer number of blossoms on this large tree.

Am I lucky or what? My pal Susan gave me this as a gift. I got to savor its beauty, take its picture, and then eat it.

I adore apple blossom season. The sight of the billowing blooms makes me happy. I like this shot, because it shows the blossoms at so many stages.

A lot of people on flickr like this one. I didn't notice the X until after I uploaded it and had seen it a few times.

I don't take too many pictures of people, partly out of respect for their privacy. However, I couldn't resist this shot and several like it that I took. I marveled at the similarities and differences among these women.

leaf on a white fence

Originally uploaded by Muffet.

This photo is one of my most widely viewed on flickr. I took it last year in the parking lot behind my office. At the time, there was a white plastic fence there. Recently, this was replaced with a wooden fence. The wooden fence looks far better but it would not have made such a dramatic backdrop for this leaf.

I adore this field and take a picture of it every week. Sometimes I photograph it daily. Not only is it a beautiful sight, but it also reflects the change of the seasons, the weather, and the world of nature in general.

I do love how the spring light pours in the windows, and I love tomatoes that start to taste like tomatoes.
