april showers [17/52]

A week of rain. Not something I usually welcome (although I love a good thunderstorm) but in the Spring, it’s Mother Nature’s way of cleaning up.

And keeping you indoors.

No, these are not my actual windows. It’s an old window that normally hangs on my wall, taken down and placed in my actual window. A little more interesting than my modern day ones, no?

Taken with my cell phone, outside the office…

Although I love my BB, I think I’d happily trade it for an iphone and all of those yummy camera apps. I have my priorities, y’know ;)

One of the cool things about doing a 365 is the ability to look through your photos and see exactly what was happening on any given day. Last year at this time, this tree had leaves.

This shot was earlier in the week and thanks to all of the rain, we now have some buds. A little bit of sun (please?) and we’ll be seeing green soon.

I hope.

And here, a rare break …

Here’s to sunny days on the horizon :)

      Oh girl, it’s totally okay!
      I’m running around chasing my tail half the time these days. And to think, my word this year (one little word) is “focus”.
      ummm … yeah ;)

    All these photos just scream fresh, spring air! A light misty rain I always find refreshing – more than that I hide. Glad to hear I am not the only one tempted to get an iphone just to do a few quick “365” or “Daily Shoot” photos on the go.

    I especially love that rainy window shot, you have the eye and the technique. Someday we’ll shoot together.

    Love the window one, and the DOF/capture in the drop of the branch one. Very nice!

    I just LOVE your window frame. I’ve wanted to get one for years and passed up on a fairly large one recently, thought it too big. I love your first, second and fourth image. They are all up my alley. The tree branch with water drop comes in a very close second.
