Prima Ballerina

Recently I have not taken many picture but I am trying to get back into the swing of things.  I bought these flowers a while ago and can not remember their name (nothing new for me). I like how the buds hang low and then when it blooms the petals go up with a little swirl to them.

7 Days of Nature Challenge (6/7)

Mother Nature has thrown a tantrum

The calendar says that spring arrived on March 20 which was twenty days ago.  Now Mother Nature must not like us telling her when to start Spring so she had to let us know that she was was not finished with winter yet.  She blanketed part of the north-east United Sates with varying degrees of snow.

Here in NJ we got a bit more than a dusting but not too bad compared to what some got out in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Here are some pictures from my part of the world.

When will Spring actually arrive?

A Camera Imitates

While checking out pictures on Instagram I came across this quote on simplescenesimagery page:

Camera

Focus on what’s important

Capture the good times

Develop from the negatives

And if things don’t work out

Take another shot!

I thought this was a perfect way to see things.  Sometimes when we break things down they make more seems.

WP PHOTO CHALLENGE: (EXTRA) ORDINARY

I believe that butterflies are extraordinary creatures.  They begin their life as a caterpillar, once they reach a certain weight and length they enclose themselves in a Pupa or Chrysalis.  Depending on the breed they can be in the pupa for a few days or as long as a winter season.

But when they finally emerge, it is the image of beauty and grace.

Ordinary?

Ordinary or Extraordinary?

Perhaps the butterfly is proof

that you can go through a great deal of

darkness and yet come out…..

I am at it again, converting an image to black and white.  This time I posted three images and would like to know which you prefer.

I am leaning towards version one.  The back and white is at a very closed second.
