Lets face it we are all over hearing about earthquakes. Well I am at least, although I have loads more that I'd like to say ;)
No doubt as I travel around the city, hopefully with my camera in tow, I will capture a few shots of various things that catch my attention & they may have something to do with the earthquake but overall I'd like to use this challenge as a distraction rather than a reminder.
Prior to that rude awakening from Mother Nature, I was looking forward to her far more gentle & subtle awakening by way of Spring. I have almost missed all of the early signs in the wake of the quake....but it's not too late to try & capture some of what is left as the season finishes awakening, warming & progressing towards summer.
This is one that fascinated me in the back garden, as it is the one of only four deciduous trees on the property. I missed the early buds that preceded these pink drooping blooms & now it is busy pushing forth a colour coordinated new leaf growth.
