The magnolias in the neighborhood are blooming. These are much smaller blossoms than the magnolias with which I grew up in the South.

You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.

Superb. You have such sensitivity Jack and I don't think that can be taught. I think it comes from your soul. I think your photos reflect you and suspect you have a very beautiful soul.
