Week 14: Center Frame Portrait
The assignment this week was to take a center-framed portrait shot that isolates the subject and exhibits loneliness. What to do, what to do. I’m not really a portrait photographer, nor do I especially enjoy taking portrait photos. I’m also not inclined to be a voyeur of people when traveling around with my camera. So I came up with this: the bewildered, serious tree in the midst of a profusion of happy daffodils. The “how did this happen” shot. Oh well…

Week 13: New Beginnings
For me, spring always represents new beginnings–almost in every direction. Each year I look forward to the first blooms of the profusion of daffodils in my yard. They always usher in the rest of the springtime flowers.
I’m playing catchup this week, so you will see two posts. These are nothing more than floral greetings from Washington DC as spring finally makes its debut. The tourists arrived en masse over the past couple of weeks expecting to see peak cherry blossoms, but instead got cold weather and bare trees. Those arriving late will be rewarded this week as the temps are expected to reach into the 70s.
