The Azaleas started blooming here in mid March which is about the earliest anyone can remember. They were quick victims of the almost weekly frosts but now that warmer weather has finally arrived, the blooms have resumed their parade of color. These red flowers are on a very old formosa variety.
If you’re interested in photojournalism I call to your attention the work of Ron Haviv which is featured today in the New York Times Photography Blog “Lens”. You’ll find it in the “Links” listing on this page. Scroll to “Photography In The Docket”. Haviv’s very moving and disturbing shots of the Bosnian War of 1992 have been used as evidence in War Crimes Trials. Unable to stop the “ethnic cleansing” he used his camera to bring the slaughter of innocents to worldwide attention.
Thanks for the visit and have a great evening.
