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.

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.
