Spring is definitely here and the flowers are blooming–time to start carrying my Canon 400D with me all time again.

Just outside the main office building there some magnolia trees . . .

I used my Canon 50mm lens to take these shots.  I really like the background blur that this lens can produce.

I want to find some other magnolia trees where the flowers are lower to the ground so I can try getting some shots from above.  This weekend Julianne and I’ll will be out and walking around taking pictures like crazy–if the weather is good that is (there might be rain).

Some days I feel like I work at Hogwarts . . . hehe.
