Photo Reflection of the Day #103: Hey there, BUDdy

What Is It

Some budding flowers on a tree.

Why It's Today's Pick

Spring is coming!  I felt the sun strongly on me as I walked on the campus today and came across these budding flowers.  I was drawn to the contrast of bright green leaves, whitish flowers and dark gray branches.  It seems that from such a dark thing bright things come forth and again, I find that an intriguing metaphor about life and the ways we discover new things about us as we encounter darker (or challenging) experiences in our lives.  I also found the shadows in the background of the bare branches upon the ground to be a great visual--mapping out the direction(s) of the tree's life through the use of sun and shade.
