I miss Steven, and I wish he were available to join us, but I am sure he wouldn't mind if we used one of the many suggestions he gave us for a challenge. This one struck a cord with me, because as we transition from winter to spring, I feel myself looking up in relation to my photography, and my attitudes in general. Even on rainy days I feel that sense of hope that a warm spring day can provide. As much as I enjoy the autumn and winter for it's dark, shorter days, I am ready for spring and summer and all it brings... especially the summer fruits and veggies! :)
But most of all... I am ready to be out with the camera, and my quest for color! I am ready to see the flowers in bloom, the colorful kites at the Berkeley Marina, and all the public art I can find! Oh, and let's not forget, I have been on a quest to find the Mission Blue butterfly forever, maybe this will finally be the year! Cross your fingers for me!! It is an amazing butterfly, which due to man, has been on the endangered species list. But now, thanks to some magnificent work by some scientists and butterfly enthusiasts, their numbers have been on the upswing. It's exciting to think they are once again growing in numbers!
Here is my collection of Looking Up/Looking Down photos. Enjoy!
