The Jacaranda trees are in bloom now, a little early. I looked at photos of them from two years ago and they were taken on May 25.
We’ve been having a lot of windy days lately, but I was worried about missing the blossoms, so I ventured out the other day:
I had to stand and wait for the wind to subside and then quickly take the photo before the wind gusted again. Even with a fast shutter speed, bokeh looks wonky if the wind is blowing hard.
I moved around a lot to get different perspectives and different-colored bokeh.
The seed pods are a little strange, aren’t they?
Viewed closely, the blossoms remind me of bluebells.
I took these shots around 5:30, so the sun was starting to dip.
Hope your week’s going well so far. I had to take Rocky to the vet because he seemed to be in pain. His back is acting up, so the vet prescribed muscle relaxers and painkillers. Hopefully this is temporary, but Rocky is 17. He hasn’t lost his mental acuity, though. I tried hiding a tiny pill in his treat and then cheese, and he figured it out every time. Will try peanut butter tomorrow…wish me luck.
