  1. Gorgeous photos, Gina Marie. Although I’ve driven past St. Luke’s many times, I’ve never stopped to look along the grounds. Cemeteries ironically make for beautiful imagery even though they are such icons of sadness or negative feelings. I like the last one the most – you’ve captured and then transformed this photo with just one warm color. Very nice work!

  2. Thank you, Patricia. I enjoy your feedback, not only due to your keen eye for detail and passion for art, but also because you’re local! As an aside, a previous comment of yours inspired my husband and I to book a trip to DC in mid-May to see the National Gallery exhibit you’d mentioned. (Can’t wait!)

    Isn’t it funny how one might pass a place dozens of times without knowing all the treasures that lie therein? I happened upon the St. Luke’s grounds by happy coincidence. It’s truly something else–especially in the spring, with all the flowering magnolia trees.

    1. Just a quick mention that the show at the National Gallery is only up through May 19th (I hope your plans are made for before that date.) I only mention b/c one other friend asked me if it would be up for his DC visit in June (and sadly it won’t be.) I’m still hoping to get a quick visit in myself but time will tell! 🙂

      1. We’ll be there before the 19th, with cameras in tow. 🙂

  3. Absolutely stunning photos Gina!! Beautiful. All of the different colors of vegetation here in Oregon makes me feel as if I am in a fantasy-land, can’t wait for you to see it (in just about 6 weeks!!)

    1. Merci beaucoup, Ilona! Hope I spelled that correctly . . .

      I am excited to see Oregon in just a few short weeks!

  4. I love these pics! I can’t decide if I like the cherry blossoms or the fact that they were taken in a cemetery better 😉
    Thanks for checking out my blog. I’m following you now and I look forward to seeing more of your pictures!

  5. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, Nikki! I am loving what I’ve seen so far of your work and look forward to viewing future posts. 🙂
