Amy and Cherry Blossoms Float Free

Amy and Cherry Blossoms Float Free

Arbutus, Maryland

I have a framed copy of this photo of my wife Amy by my desk here in Baltimore and when I was in New York. I consider it my signature environmental portrait of her as it captures her easy-going personality and love of life's simple pleasures. The image serves as a wonderful icon for the pre-children phase of our life together. We were at our friend Bill's house and he created a shower of blossom petals by shaking a cherry tree just as we were walking down the driveway. This is the kind of image that's very difficult to make with a digital camera unless it just happens to be turned on—and luckily it was.
