Cherry Blossoms | Fine Art Photography

Here are some lovely cherry blossom pictures I took a couple weeks ago. I'm sad that most cherry trees have already lost their blooms, they just don't stick around long enough! I have three more cherry blossom photographs that can also be seen over in my Nature Gallery.

I've already purchased a print of this one for myself, tightly cropped in on the left blossom, to include
in a wall collage of macro flowers all cropped square and done in black and white. It looks great!

John + Manita Wedding

I had such a great time with John and Manita. The love was palpable and Manita really knew how to work it! And I'm so glad she made the choice to meet in the Plaza in front of the Oregon State Capitol building with all the cherry trees gorgeous in bloom! Congratulations John and Manita!

i {heart} faces "Wind"

This week's i♥faces theme is wind.

I discovered a few things in contemplating this theme:

1. As the mother to 3 boys, my personal work is not filled with flowy blowing hair.
2. My professional work has apparently not encountered much wind, nor do we really get that much wind here compared to other places I've lived.
3. Even when we go to the beach where there's lots of wind, I still have boys and the cold Oregon beaches inspire the use of hats anyway.

Thus, I'm going with this rare self-portrait of my husband and I atop the Columbia River Gorge where it is always very windy. In fact, it felt like we were going to be blown off the cliff here.

Rainbow | Landscape Photography

During Spring Break I caught this rainbow on a trip back from the coast and thought this photo turned out lovely for racing down the highway!
