the first blooms

undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedKodak Ektar 100

When I saw these blooms outside my window, I smiled quietly to myself.  Spring is slowly making her way to the Northeast, even though the sky is cloudy and there is still a little chill in the air.

I love the promise that these blooms hold – Spring is a season of such renewal and awakening.

+ Thanks so much for your wonderful comments on my previous post.  It’s so good to know that many of you feel the same way!

+ Also, thanks so much Astrid, who invited me to be a part of her Why do you shoot film? series.

    You’re in the northeast? For some reason I thought you were in the South.

    Such beautiful images of what’s to come here in New Hampshire. Today we have rain and cloudy skies. Hard to believe it will be warm enough for Hummingbirds in the next 2-3 weeks!ReplyCancel

    Gabrielle, where to start…? I’m pretty sure yours is the only blog that my husband and I follow concurrently. Quite often, we’ll be propped up in bed with our laptops and he’ll be marvelling over the results/clarity/lighting you’re capturing with film while I’m admiring the composition, styling and beauty you unearth in the everyday. Of all the blogs I follow, it’s been a very real pleasure to find yours.ReplyCancel
