The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Eric-
This photo was taken across the street from our house in Lake Oswego-
so many flowering plum trees were planted as each house was built.
We have a weeping ornamental cherry tree- just about ready to bloom
The nice thing about spring here in the NW is that it literally takes 3 months
or more for everything to bloom...unlike California where it all blooms together
and after just a few weeks- it's all over with!

Beautiful! In Japan they actually have a traditional holiday celebrating cherry blossom time.
