I have a thing for flowering dogwoods...I only discovered it when I first saw the dogwoods blooming along the streets of Walla Walla, Washington, just about 60 miles from my home. After that discovery, I made certain to trek across the mountains each spring to photograph the dogwood blossoms. I stopped on side streets and in the parking lot of the Elks' Club to get my photos.Then a friend told me about Pioneer Park. That's my go-to place now: at least 30 dogwood trees are planted in two rows; most are shades of pink, but there are two "white" ones (one is more green than white). I can walk under those trees with my camera, capturing the blossoms from every possible angle. Even though I critique and delete on my computer, I still end up with so many images.
