Ligia’s hard work planting all kinds of new flowers in our garden last year has definitely paid off. This spring we’ve enjoyed quite a few different kinds of daffodils and tulips — and that was on top of the usual spring appearances from hyacinths, forget-me-nots, dandelions, snowdrops, violets and more. It’s been lovely!

By the way, I took these photographs with my Olympus E-1, a DSLR made in 2003. Don’t let anyone tell you old cameras can’t meet your needs anymore.

If you should like to license an image of mine, I’ve begun to build a catalog at Picfair. You can see it here: photos.raoulpop.com. Of course you can also contact me directly, but it’s probably easier to just get them there, and I think I’ve priced them quite affordably.

The theme is the arrival of spring while reminding you of winter. If my schedule allows I’ll publish a separate post with photos from one of these late winter/early spring snowfalls which I love so much. For now, enjoy these photographs!

I’d also appreciate your feedback on whether or not I should set up a proper photo catalog at Picfair. Here’s the one I’ve set up for now, which I’ve maxed out at 50 photographs (that’s all they allow with their free plan). If some of you plan to purchase licenses for commercial uses of my photographs or want an easy way to order prints, I’ll go ahead and upgrade to their paid plan, which will let me put up tens of thousands of my images for sale, but I’d rather not go to the effort and the expense if it’s not going to be used, so let me know what you think.

Also, I’ve decided to increase the number of photographs per each one of these posts from 10 to 20.

The theme is once again winter. I know that other parts of the world have had plenty of snow, but we have not, so I yearn for it and treasure every little snowfall we’ve had. Enjoy!

No particular theme for this set of images. Let’s just call it #phototherapy. We’re all stuck indoors, so we need it. Btw, I’ve been posting frequent images to my social media accounts lately, for the same reason. Enjoy!
