2015-04-25 Another Year, Another Show
Every year I look forward to the blooming of the magnolia, because each year is different, depending on the weather. In these parts, the peak blooming period can occur anywhere between mid-March to mid-April, and can last a week, or a day. You have to hope to get lucky with light and weather during the peak period… and when you get the opportunity, you have to shoot like crazy, because whatever the conditions, time is short. There’s another reason to shoot as much as you can – the more you work a subject, the closer you get to understanding – and being able to communicate – it’s essential nature, and the feelings that it evokes for you.
