You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.

My hubby and I are moving this week. Yay. And although it may explain my lack of energy, it does not excuse the lack of recent photo posts.

On my recent morning walk, I brought my camera along. #DeliberatePractice over perfection. Using only my 50mm lens, I set to work trying to capture the spring flowers.

It’s always an interesting challenge to photograph a subject that has been done a million times over. I always like to push myself to find a new detail or angle… Pictures of flowers can be dead boring (you know what I’m talking about). However, they also possess the ability to create the most stunning of photos.

It may be Springtime, however the sun still plays hide and seek.
