From one of my regular early morning visits to Baltimore.

I was totally surprised by the dated appearance of this image, as it looks like this straight from the negative and without any heavy Photoshop editing done to it. In fact, the whole roll of film looks like this. I seriously doubt if I can repeat the results again.
It’s almost that time of year again — the cherry blossoms are about to bloom in Washington, DC! They were forecast earlier to be at peak by March 22nd or 23rd, but the cold spell we’ve been having for the past week has slowed things down a bit, so they are expected to peak sometime next week — closer to March 27th or later.
An online discussion about the famous painter, Andrew Wyeth, with another blogger reminded me of this photo — which I figured they would appreciate seeing.
For those unfamiliar, Andrew Wyeth is considered a modern master of egg tempera, a form of painting that dates back to the early Egyptian era. Andrew was known also for his muted color palette, isolated subjects, and rather bleak-looking compositions — all of which I thought of when I saw this image before me in a snow storm.
