Spring Rising

This was the first weekend where it actually felt like Spring in DC. The cherry blossoms had bloomed, the sun was out, and tourists had descended upon us. I decided to visit the Tidal Basin for the sunrise to kick off what felt like the real start of the season. In an attempt to add at least a little to my photos that would differentiate them from those of the throngs of photographers taking the same shots thousands of times, I brought along a friend. Later in the day I took a walk through Dumbarton Oaks with another friend (a human friend). The gardens hadn't totally blossomed, but the grass was still green and lush beneath our feat. Magnolias and tulips flowered and shed their sheath like petals along the paths. I'm looking forward to visiting again when it's in full bloom.
