At work today, someone asked me if I knew what kind of flowering tree it was that we have out back. I said, “We have a flowering tree out back?”
Shot this photo after work. I think it might be a cherry blossom.
Have I mentioned how much I like the tilty screens that are on many of the newer cameras. The lowest branches of this tree were still above my head, but it was easy to compose the photo and make sure I was focused on the right spot by tilting the back LCD screen downwards. I still prefer using a viewfinder most of the time, but the tilting screen comes in handy for high-angle and low-angle shots.
