Knowing this would be a busy week, I loaded up on potential photos last weekend, which included documenting the spring flowers still emerging in our yard. Here is what happens when you don’t accidentally snip the stem of the climatis plant when doing spring cleanup. The vine climbs and you actually get flowers!
Back to early spring weather last week, these tables and chairs outside a cafe were deserted in favor of their warmer cousins inside. I decided to go black and white to increase the stark mood rather than leave the inviting warm brown bricks as the background. I also want the viewer to focus on the abstract shapes created by the chairs and their shadows in the harsh early afternoon light.
Washington Capitals (hanging on by their fingernails to a last place playoff spot) vs. Florida Panthers, final score 4-2. The Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Buffalo Sabres the same night. Which means that Washington will compete for the 2012 Stanley Cup after all. You never know–maybe they’ll wake up and make a comeback.
