102-108/365: Springtime

Ah, well. So much for my plan to post my Project 365 photos on Sunday, but better late than never, right? Clearly, it was a very sporty week for me — two baseball games and a hockey game.

Oops. I forgot to take a picture on Friday. If I had, it would probably have been of the hours-long traffic jam I sat in on the Beltway, en route to the beach.

    Your dogwood photo mirrors my thoughts as I was driving to work this morning — Vestal Ave is gorgeous — forsythia, crabapple trees, leafy trees with red & green buds bursting with little tiny leaves — my favorite time of the year. The lilacs & tulips are not there yet, maybe next week. And, seeing as it is Green Day, even the lawns are beginning to look shaggy — time to start mowing. HAVE A GOOD ONE! HUGS……

    We were crazy excited as we transitted TN & KY, seeing the dogwoods and cherry blossoms adn lilacs…a very cheery thing, isn’t it?

    Question about “your” beach: did the sand squeek???

    Please please please take as many tantalizing photos of tulips, etc. for those such as us (where spring stuff is still a few weeks out)!

    One thing I’ve really liked about Project 365 is getting those “did not succeed” results – because “did not succeed” only happens when you’re trying to expand the range your photography.

    A missed April 17 seems a good reason for another pleasant, uncrowded spring beach photo, no?

    @ CL – Um, no… I think the sand was fairly silent. And I have at least one (possibly more) photo involving flowery goodness for you from this week.

    @ scholarsretreat365 – You’re definitely right about the project making me expand my range, though to actually capture the photo I was after w/ that manhole cover I would have had to sit down on the wet sidewalk, and I’m just not that dedicated (yet). And absolutely — the traffic jam was well worth it for the beach time!
