Today's Flowers: Warm in Wilmington

trees wilmington

Not a seasonal photo. I took this one in Wilmington, North Carolina, outside the battleship North Carolina museum. After touring the ship with my nephew last summer and preparing to head for the car and the quick trip across the bridge and into Wilmington, these trees and their blossoms caught my eye. I remember wanting to capture the experience of the tree with my camera but not knowing where to look. This is like taking a picture of how an ice cream sundae tastes. Capturing an abstract experience through a concrete image is tough. When you're dizzy in love with where you are and what you're doing, it's all the more challenging. I ended up making of myself a tree hugger and looking up. I'm a simple country girl. It is what it is.

  10. I'm a tree hugger too...and not just to get a good angle shot ;-) My camera also clicks and point almost anywhere even outside of my visual eye and those shots were just as special! Now that tree is special...

  12. You may be a country girl - but you're not simple. The photo is lovely and from one tree hugger to another - I understand the reverie of being in such a moment and not being able to express it fully, but you did well.
