Spring is Here (Finally)!

Cherry Blossoms

Washington DC

After a season snow, a quick trip to the Tidal Basin in DC merited an amazing Spring day with temperatures in the 70’s. Throngs of people early in the morning gathered to experience the Spring rite of passage, the opening of the Cherry Blossoms. This group of images aren’t your ordinary Cherry Blossom images of the monuments and the Tidal Basin. The images are an abstraction of cherry blossoms, water and painterly reflections. The images are in memory of my Mom Gloria G. Theckepera. Happy Spring!

God’s Grace.
Take a moment and take in the colors, fragrances, and the dance of nature.

Porch Flowers

I have a few pots of flowers on my porch. The flowers bloom constantly and posses very intricate inner structure. As I come and go, I quickly glance at the flowers, but rarely stop and observe. Today, I sat on my porch and observed the brilliant color and intricate patterns. Their bloom life is short, but each blossom is never shy of absolute perfection.

“i See Color!

When planning a photo shoot for pleasure, practice or assignment, my best intention of capturing the purest rendition of the subject is usually half of the experience.  After recording  the images as it appears,  I am free to satisfy the impulse to re-interpret the subject before me. This second half of the photo shoot is most pleasurable. Creativity takes the helm and I am often delighted with an unexpected image that simply rocks my soul.   As the saying goes….”What you resist persists”. The blue and white pastel, delicate and small flowers were barely noticeable as a single flower, but once I grouped them together with neighboring flowers, colors and movement , the pallet popped with personality! This image is a  composite of three images. See Gallery
