Snow Drop

Added on by Bill.

On my walk through the park I came across a single "stand" of snow drops.

Old Leaves

The Visoflex III -- an odd contraption -- is one means of doing macro photography on the Leica M.  The newer kit uses a goggle to compensate for the parallax of the rangefinder.  The Visoflex takes another route and implements an SLR approach.  Odd, but it seems to work.

Sprung Springs

Added on by Bill.

Officially Spring is March 20 / 21st.  Usually however, the weather takes a month or so to actually reflect the season.  Not this year.  The crocuses are up, and the magnolia is ready to bloom, and my first golf game is Sunday, 8:51.
