Do you remember the old days when we used films for the cameras and brought them for development to grocery stores and drugstores? I am sure you have stacks of shoe boxes full of pictures that never made to the album we were supposed to work on rainy days. They got forgotten and became history. These days, we have megabytes of photos eating up our computer spaces and collecting virtual dust. Facebook helps somewhat, but do you really look at your friends' album postings with care?
The other day I found a photo of my neighbor's dogwood flowering in an old box and decided put it to a good use. Dogwoods are common where I live. They are not yet blooming, but when they do, boy, they brighten up neighborhoods with their white and pink flowers. I remember reading somewhere that they are a very old specie that was around the times of dinosaurs.
Dogwood flowers, despite their prehistoric pedigree, have a contemporary sculptural look, which I like. Against a cloudless blue sky, they are simply stunning.
