The Wonders of Spring
Having lived in India and Africa, I always took sun for granted. Living in Philadelphia for 1.5 years and witnessing the brutal winter of 2017-18 has made me realize how much I love the spring and summer seasons. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. So, after months and months of waiting, when spring finally arrived, I realized I wanted to capture it in all it’s glory.
This was also a great opportunity to experiment with a macro lens, that I had never used before. Using a macro lens and having a fixed focal length made me realize the importance of finding the right angles. I have tried to capture the different colors of spring, the flowers, the leaves and even a brave squirrel.
These photographs, for me, are also a reminder of not taking things for granted. The colors, the flowers, the sun only last for a few months, and so do many other important things in life that we often take for granted. In fact, photographing for this project made me aware of how much happiness nature brings to my life. In the age of technology, with our eyes glued to electronics, this is something I want to hold on to.
