The post I wrote a few weeks ago, April Showers, was certainly true. After a very wet, and very chilly April I have am pleased to say we finally have May flowers. I showed one photo last week of tulips on the blog and another yesterday morning in the rain on Instagram but today I wanted to share a few all together. These photos are a complication of shot I have taken over the past few weeks on my iPhone. I purposely did not stop, align the shot, focus on the lighting, or get down to the correct angle. I wanted to show the flowers as they appear to a passerby. A bright pop of color of the sidewalk that never fails to make me smile:
I know there are plenty of places in New York – Central Park, The New York Botanical Garden, and Madison Square park to name a few – where I could go and take beautiful photos of flowers with no concrete or cracked sidewalks in the background, but that is not what I was going for. These are flowers I passed in my everyday life going to and from. And you know what? These flowers make me so happy. I am headed to Nashville this evening for a wedding but when I come back if the New York weather could match the springtime happiness of these flowers I would be very much obliged.
And in totally other news pretty soon I will be able to cross another item off my 101 in 1001 list – Sparkles and Shoes is moving to WordPress. I am working with the wonderful Lisette so this transition should be seamless but just in case, would you do two things for me? First, make sure you are following along on Bloglovin’ or by email so you will not miss out when I am no longer hosted by blogger. Second, if there is a brief period where the site is down, please bare with me – the change is for the better!
