Pictures for focus52 this week… The prompt was Cold and how could I not follow it when we’ve had snow most of the week and it was below zero this morning.
I wish that you could see her breath a little closer to her mouth–more of a “trail.” But it really didn’t show up that clearly until it was farther away from her mouth. Also a better background might have helped, but I loved the angle of the sun here, and my yard/house doesn’t offer that many scenic spots anyway.
We really only spent a few minutes taking these pictures because like it said it was COLD, and we were actually on the way to the doctor to have a recheck on Emma’s lingering ear infection (she got a different antibiotic). School was on a two-hour delay this morning, so she ended up making it to school only a little late.
I guess this is a cheat… I took this a couple weeks ago. But I’ve had a headache all day and a new shot was not meant to be. This is from our trip to the park a couple Mondays ago. That’s my daughter up there on the bench, and it was extra challenging to stay on it while it was covered in slippery snow.
Busy day. Took this from my car while driving across town during a little snow shower. I was watching the stop light, so I wasn’t really looking through the viewfinder when I took this. I’m glad I got the Don’t Walk sign in the image.
We had the whole park to ourselves. Okay, we went primarily to take pictures, and now I owe my daughter a trip to Bath and Body Works (that’s her standard modeling fee). It was fun trying to play on all the equipment with a foot of snow on the ground.
Well my kids finally got a snow day off school… too bad it happened to be a regularly scheduled holiday. They just can’t get a break this year! Sorry for another snowy bench shot… it’s all I got right now!
My 17-year-old son and the 3 foot long icicle he found hanging from the gutter. His hands were freezing.

Walking/jogging path near my home. I should be jogging myself instead of taking pictures, but at least I was enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. It was beautiful today, but still only about 25 degrees (Fahrenheit).
February 10, 2010. Coneflowers buried under the snow. (I used this photo to make a motivational poster on my other blog Breezewords.com.)
More snow today. I tried something a little different with the processing here. I think I like the antique feeling…
I just joined the Two for Tuesday group over on Flickr so I’d have a home for my diptychs. It’s a new group, but it already has a lot of beautiful diptychs.
I don’t know the people who this bench is dedicated to, but it is in a beautiful spot. My son is hoping he’ll be working his new job next Monday, so he won’t get roped into doing another bench shot. I was glad he came with me though. This spot was too precarious for the tripod.
Digging out between snowstorms. Beautiful blue sky today. For the record, that’s my neighbor’s house with the Christmas wreath still up.
My kids were hoping for a snow day today, but they were out of luck. Here’s my neighbor’s son shortly after getting off the school bus this afternoon. Took this from my dining room window because it was too nasty to go outside.
