I honestly don’t remember taking this picture. It was taken sometime in 2010 when I was going to Meadowlark Botanical Gardens a lot to practice my macro photography work. Personally, I think macro photography is a completely different way of seeing. Seeing and noticing little details that you would never notice just walking by. But when you stop and study what you’re looking at, you have to learn to subtract to make an even better image with the small details.
Getting ready to leave to Europe this weekend and I c a n ‘ t w a i t!!!
We’ve all know the cherry blossoms around the tidal basin (or if you follow my blog regularly, you definitely know them), but have you heard of weeping cherry blossoms? I hadn’t heard of them until after one day towards the end of the cherry blossom season when Navin told me about them. I thought it sounded really cool and it was a coincidence the very next day, I go to Meadowlark Botanical Garden and they were in full bloom. They are so beautiful!
This past week has been crazy. Virginia was threaten with thunderstorms all week, so for most of my images I have some dramatic skies.
Take a look at Meadowlark Gardens with rain clouds.
The next day I headed to DC to shot the coolest building in the district, the National Museum of the American Indian.
I figured with the dramatic skies, Great Falls National Park would look nice. I was right!
The last two images of the week were older ones. The tornados eneded up being a little too much for this photographer. So, I posted an image of the Albert Einstein Memorial (how cute is Albie?) and the Kennedy Center at sunrise.
Heres a video review of my new/old Canon RS-80N3.
Two very exciting things happened this week (not in any particular order)
1. I was a finalist in the FotoDC Cherry Blossom Competition. Jump to 6:50 to see my image.
2. I’m in an ebook! 50 Awesome Things to do in Washington DC is not just an ordinary guide to DC. It’s so much more than that with restaurants, events, and tons of places to visit. Check it out for FREE!
Hope you all have a great weekend! I’ll be back next week with some awesome images of Vegas and maybe a vlog or two 🙂
