Callery Pear Blossoms (Pyrus calleryana) - Spring in Pleasanton (February 2016)

Back in February 12th and February 16th, I went out and took some springtime photos around Pleasanton, CA. I took photos spring flower blossoms, mushrooms, clouds, and wildlife. Some of the photos are from Pleasanton Tennis & Community Park. You maybe wondering why I am posting these photos so late. If you have been following me here or on social media, you would know my old computer broke down (so no photo processing), I had to set up a new computer, and I had to deal with some health issues. All the things going on in my life delayed my work by a very long time. I still hope you enjoy these photos though. The photos from my photo shoots will be split into a few separate blog posts.

The photos for today are of Callery Pear Blossoms (Pyrus calleryana) from random parts of Pleasanton, CA. All of the photos for today (with the exception of the last photo) were taken on February 12th. The last photo was taken on February 16th.

I felt the white flowers against the blue sky made a really nice contrast.

I purposely used other flowers on the tree as the background for this photo as I feel the other flowers blurred out in the background makes a really good composition.
