Backyard Winter Nature in New Jersey: Spring is Coming!!!

When I got home today, I noticed that these Purple Crocuses were in bloom across the street. I think that this is the earliest that I have seen these blooming. In addition, some of the Daffodils are also starting to bloom.

For those wondering why I have not posted recently, things have been busy at work.

    You’re loving that V1, aren’t you? Really nice shots, nice colour!!
    I just went out on a shoot with Sophie (yesterday) and she used the newish Pentax 67 with a couple of lenses and a hefty tripod. It was quite fun–I have no idea how the shots will look–film is so hard to live with these days. How doI get to see your Google+?

    1. David,

      I see that you have joined Google+. Now you need to add me to one of your circles. Then you will see my posts. I have added you to one of my circles so I will see anything you share to +Public or +”The circle you have me in”

      Does Sophie also develop the film herself?
