You know it is Tuesday when you get a post from me with two prompts. And here is the first one:
1. Leslie’s prompt today: Finish the Sentence: Right now is the perfect time to _________
Spring into spring, of course! Bet you thought, I would say spring cleaning. Nope, not me. I don’t particular like cleaning or most any kind of house work, except cooking.
Anyways, there were hints that it was on its way, but now it is definitely here. While I cannot walk around with my camera in hand, still need two crutches, I could not resist and took a few shots with my dSLR from our balcony. I used my macro lens. Just look at the detail in those pictures (click them to enlarge!). I had never known that beech leaves start out as being totally fuzzy. Just wait a few days, maybe next weekend these buds will be full blown leaves and those red ones on the other tree will be in full bloom. Fair bet, you can find me out on the balcony with my camera again.
I had really hoped to get another ride to our Arboretum and the magnificent and huge magnolia tree I took pictures of the previous year, but David had other plans. We also had very cold and wet weather this past week, which makes me wonder if all the cherry trees and magnolia are still showing their full bloom. I don’t know. Maybe I’ll get a chance during the week. But for now I am enjoying the view from my window and balcony.
2. Kathy’s suggestion for Song-ography is: “Automatic” by Miranda Lambert
Kathy really has knack for finding songs that I have never heard or heard of. Off to ask Google… and apparently it is a somewhat nostalgic song, remembering all those things that got replaced by modern, automatic gadgets and processes. There is no mention of a camera in the song, but I think the second photo still fits the bill. The first one references the song’s second line:
Quarter in a payphone
Drying laundry on the line
