Wild Clouds3


Wild Clouds1

This was the scene two days ago as wild weather blew through and then just before sunset the sun came out. I have not been going out much lately but as we left the grocery store, I said to my wife, this is going to get good, so I grabbed the gear and found a decent spot and watched it unfold.

Spring Landscape

Happened to notice this lovely carpet of fallen pink blossoms the other day and I stopped and snapped a quick shot. I was basically seeing what angle I wanted to shoot because I planned on coming back later in the evening with my tripod and gear. Turns out when I did return that evening,the owner had already mowed the yard and all the pink was gone, so I worked with the original shot instead.

Garden Bicycle

Still not finding the desire to go out shooting these days and I certainly cannot remember a spring where I have had so little ambition to photograph the spring color?  This wonderful little friend of mine called depression has been gnawing at me the past two weeks again and has me in a very negative disposition concerning life in general.  For me personally, it is a very isolating condition and I would rather sit alone in a room and try to get past negative thoughts on my own than to hear someone say they are thinking about me, because deep down I do not really believe there are too many people who really truly care one iota about my battles and to be quite honest, why should they?  I am always amazed how I talk to some people who have incredible problems and they handle it with ease, but I struggle trying to just go day-to-day. Thank goodness I have not shot much lately, because every other post on here is me whining these days. On a positive note, this bicycle is part of a project I am working on and this is my first creation, which I was taking through my back yard and I decided to stop and take a shot with our flowering tree that was dropping pink blossoms. In the back are the arbor and shed details I made as well. The arbor has 12 foot 6×6 timbers and I still remember digging 4 ft holes and trying to lift the posts to drop them in the holes.
