Photos from a Lovely Spring Day

I think after a lot of messing around, I've finally settled on a system for getting my photos edited and uploaded. For a while I had a system that worked well for me, then I made the switch to Lightroom, was just starting to figure that out and I got my smart phone, and then got completely lost on how to manage camera photos, phone photos, plus random stuff like Instagram. I think it's finally all starting to come together.

I'll make a post about my processing system soon, but for now I'm just going to share the fruits of my labors from yesterday. Here are some snapshots from the month of March.


Some ticket to ride fun.

Breakfast out.

The following are all from a ridiculous afternoon in Salem at the peak of the cherry blossoms.

Love turning the lens to capture the sky and the treetops as you do here.
I have a small sample of it on my blog. Take a look there!

These cherry blossoms are amazing, and with the bright blue-sky backdrop. SPRING!

Those are really pretty pictures. I have to say I am jealous though. It's April here in Canada and we still have snow on the ground :(

Ahhhhhhhhhhh Spring!!! It's about time. Brutal winter here in Pennsylvania and we are not used to it. Your photos are lovely. If you figure out lightroom, I may need a tut. Just got into it and trying to work with it. Happy Spring to all.

Your photos are just beautiful. You are a Great Photographer! We are getting a little sign of spring but still kind of cold. Can't wait to see your new system post to get some ideas.

Great pic of you and Jordan, even though I've never met you in person... lol! I'm jealous of the are about a month ahead of us here in Montana. We're supposed to get snow all weekend. I agree with Sheila, the last photo is a great background paper. Hmmmmm.....

great photos! I'm so jealous of the beautiful blooms you've got so far. We still have a little bit of snow that's melting and I definitely haven't seen any type of blooming yet, which is making me antsy because I just got a brand new camera!

All the outdoors, spring photos are great. I remember loving going for long walks in amongst the trees in bloom. Now two bad knees, a bucket full of allergies and now lung disease keeps me indoors most of the time. Getting old is not for whimps. I love looking at you layouts and photos. Thank you for sharing them.

Thank you! These photos are soothing and give me hope that it will soon be possible to take someone like them here in my part of the world.
