At last, here are my first flowers photographed outside in 2021! Yes, here are our snowdrops, poking their heads up in the late afternoon sun sheltered by the wall of the workshop. I was so excited to see them, that I ran in to get my camera and catch them before they lost the light. And I’m so glad that I did, as they are now buried under about 3″ of freshly fallen snow. I guess they are still under there, waiting for a melt when they can once again show themselves. At these temperatures they might be finished before that happens, so I am really happy to be able to bring you my small offering of these little harbingers of spring. Hold on, my friends, it really is on the way. We just have to keep watching for each tiny sign and not miss one of them. I really love how the vintage Helios 44-2 lens has created this interesting effect (bokeh) in a pattern around the flowers. That was a major part of project – to feature flower photographs taken mostly with this lens – and perhaps you can appreciate my fascination for it a bit better, seeing this image. Have a lovely day, my friends. Watch for the signs!
