Spring Bloom

I was at the Union Square Green Market yesterday and saw this beautiful bloom at one of the booths selling flowers and fruits. I switched my camera into macro mode and managed to shoot about 12 photos. This was the most perfectly focused and composed photo of the lot.

So are you waiting for spring to arrive?

A beautiful shot of a beautiful anemone!
Just now, I am waiting for the the rain stop because I'd want to mow my garden...

This is a nice photograph. I like it a lot.

You can see a map of where I live on my brookville blog and how I plan to spend some of my royalty check.

Spring is already here; actually, except for one flooded day, we had no winter...
Self-portrait? Anytime travelling alone... ;)
Have a great weekend!

beautiful. Love the subtle colours. Spring is already here - people sunbathing on the beach today although I'm still well wrapped up!

I like it, but try cropping it within the flower (I think it will be more dramatic).

Oh, and Happy Easter :)
