Lots of soft, powdery textured snow arrived early Monday morning. I think around 10 inches.Â During the beginning of a snow storm I enjoy taking a ride in my car.Â I get this feeling of – survival mode, being in my auto-bubble as I ride along the street packed with snow. My little humble Chevy is fantastic in the snow. I just move along – never get stuck. If I don’t say so myself, I’m really a terrific driver, especially in a snow storm.Â It’s such a beautiful sight to see.
It would be wonderful to hear how you are doing. I always look forward to your comments.
I’ve been told by the professional weather scientists who predict in what form nature is coming – snow is falling in my little town tonight.Â I’m so delighted to hear that!
I feel snow creates such an altering visual of the environment – and it happens during the winter months, only.Â Other elements such as wind, rain, fog etc., can occur during any of the 3 other seasons. It’s just so, so amazingly beautiful. Thank you for stopping by, I look forward to your comments.
Today has been a long day and I thought before I retire I wanted to share this photo I took a few years ago.
A neighbor of mine had a small greenhouse in the back of her home. She wanted to show me her beautiful plants. I followed her as she walked to the back of her house. There, resting on the lawn was this quaint greenhouse. I was very impressed. She went inside and I decided to photograph her while she was pruning her plants. I loved the way the glass muted her face.
Please let me know your response to Woman with Plants – I’ll be looking forward to your comments. Thank you so much for coming by today.
A candidate for public office where I live asked me to take several photographs for a brochure that’s being printed soon. Tonight has been chosen because there will be a group of people gathered with the candidate. I was told group shots were needed as well as a portrait of him with his family.
I’m looking forward to this shoot – it’s always challenging to create photographs of people in their natural environments.Â On-location portraits presents its own set of issues as opposed to studio photography. The lighting is trickier in that you don’t know what you’re walking into. The ambient light vs. flash.Â I enjoy its challenges and will let you know how things went.
I wasn’t able to photograph the magnificent diamonds growing from the branches of trees in my area. I hope there will be another opportunity.
Thank you for dropping by.

Below is The Canal I,Â that caught my eyes bathing in this wonderful haunting reflection of a factory building nestled at the edge of a small town. The quality of light reflecting on water creates a mystery within this factoryâ€™s lit windows.Â There are many stories that lie within its walls. ,
This image is part of a series I did during the early morning hours. I was always intrigued with this factory landscape and its water reflection greatly enhanced its wonder. Tell me your thoughts. Thank you.
