REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Creative Exchange makes a gray day beautiful!

Lisa's Creative Exchange continues to beautify my computer monitor each Monday....and days afterwards....with terrific photos from around the world.    Lisa sets the tone this week with another of her fabulous macro floral images.

My own choice is one of many dogwood photos I took late last week on a trip over the mountains (crossing mountains is a requirement for leaving this part of the country, no matter which direction one is going!) for a minor repair to my car.  Dogwood trees are street trees in the town of Walla Walla, Washington, and they are in full bloom right now.  I pulled into one parking lot that is surrounded by pink, white and pale yellow blossoms this time of year.  The "yellow" dogwood blossoms are much smaller than the pink and white, and they have bright green centers,

That dogwood blossom shape is fantastic.
Must be lovely to work with. I bet you have a few more of these edited, don't you?

Oh Evelyn, this is gorgeous! Even more so to me right now, since it was just yesterday when we discovered that both of our dogwood trees (one pink and one white) did not make it through the winter for some reason. Both more than 10 years old too. :-(

They are my favorites, right up there with magnolias, but I am going to have to start stalking other people's dogwood trees for this year!

Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful day!

This lovely photo makes me a little homesick for the Northwest, where we used to live (B.C. and Washington state). I didn't know there were yellow dogwood blossoms!

Your image is so lovely! Dogwoods are one of my favorite blossoms -- I spent a lot of time trying to capture their beauty this Spring with limited results. Your photo does the dogwood justice.
Well done!

This capture is awesome....so beautiful. Dogwood blossoms are gorgeous on the trees, but this shot is out of this world. So much detail. Beautiful photography.

I have to say I'm feeling kinda jealous with all the beautiful dogwood shots lately. I don't think there's a dogwood tree in the state of Texas! Anyway, I'm very contented enjoying your lovely photo. Hope you have a wonderful week!
