    A quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupery: “Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away”.

    Didn’t think I was going to get one today, flat out at work and the temperature difference between inside the car and outside, coupled with high humidity made it almost impossible to get something that didn’t look like a bad attempt at vasoline smeared soft bokeh...

    I had to wait in today for a delivery, it came this afternoon just before the sun shone behind the cloud and in line with this hedgerow tree behind my cottage. I did have a banker shot from my front door early this morning, overcast, gloomy and damp. There will be another opportunity to get one like that this month for certain.

    Flowering Crabapples, Malus spp., are ornamental trees that produce showy blossoms and brightly colored fruits known as pommes. There are some 30 distinct species of crabapple and hundreds of cultivars, making exact identification difficult. This particular tree has brilliant white & pink flowers in the spring, and holds its fruit through the winter. Other species drop the fruit when it ripens. Crabapple fruit tends to be very sour, even bitter, although some varieties are used to make jelly.

    In the thick of it, I'm not even stepping out - the wind gusts are enough to put someone down.

  9. My Mum used to make crabapple jelly. It was quite nice but I preferred other kinds of jam. We had a tree in the back yard. No idea what kind, I didnt know there were so many different cultivars.

    I thought I would have to resort to some kind of last-minute safety shot, but then came across these guys:

    In spite of the weather, they were enjoying themselves quite a bit.

  12. I'll be a bit professorial for a moment, da' weather really sucks up in northern Vermont today. No way of getting out for a photo moment.
    Also, let me apologize for my "imaging sin". I have been testing out an aging Jupiter 8 50mm f2 on my M-E and R-D1s and wondered how it would do on my X-E2. Quite well apparently. 'Sorry for the indiscretion. ;-)

    Oscar loves a rawhide bone. I mean *really* loves it. He's had this one all week. He won't even think about chewing it for another couple of days. It's the centre of his world; he carries it, sleeps with it and hides it from the cat...

    Ladies and Gents I had to attend to a wounded citizen late today so hardly any time left Park-XL.jpg to shoot, But Good News. I managed to capture a group of Floridians enjoying the 48 degree temps at a local downtown park. They were so photogenic I didn't put any effort into post. Here's to better shooting tomorrow.
