Spent a beautiful morning wondering around the Smithsonian Gardens behind the castle. Such a beautiful place with not many people around.

Pro tip: another great place to catch the cherry blossoms when they bloom.

For now, they have these amazing magnolias trees. It was like flower heaven.

You know it’s spring when you start seeing these bloom. If cherry blossoms are the official flowers of spring in the DC area, then I think magnolias are the second runner up. They’re everywhere and they’re so big and beautiful. I’ve even heard a few tourists ask if these were cherry blossoms. No… but they’re just as beautiful 🙂

So I was looking at my instagram and noticed that a lot of my recent pictures have been very blue. Not that theres anything wrong with blue. Blue is my favorite color but I felt like I needed more variety. I went digging through my spring images and this is what I came up with! Haha. Not very colorful but I love the line. The more I look at it the more I see different shapes and figures. At one point of processing I think I crossed my eyes so much that I kinda saw a woman standing there. Do you see it or am I going crazy staring at the computer screen?

Exciting next few days coming up. This weekend I’m headed to NYC for an Arcanum photowalk!!! Super excited to meet all the other photographers and masters that will be there. And of course, to eat french fries 😀

Then next week, I’ll be in Seattle. I’ve never been. Have you? Let me know what’s fun and where to get the best fries 🙂 I’m like the cookie monster of french fries.
