February Snow Storm...

Another 6 inches fell two nights ago...sigh.  It's very pretty, but I what I wouldn't give to not live where it's cold more than half of the year.
On my drive to the doctors, I kept pulling over my car to take picures of all the prettiness.  Luckily, I didn't get stuck in a snow bank. :-)

The shop is still slow going, but Im trying to list new prints regularly and have now had 8 sales!  whoot!  I am loving the fact that photos I take that dont fit anywhere else seem to fit perfectly in bird and bloke...well, most of the time.
Anyway, here are a few images from yesterday...some available in shop:

Bored at home? maybe a still life photo shoot is just what the doctor ordered

I am trapped in my house for the next 2 weeks after having an emergency appendectomy Friday morning.  It's terribly boring, so other than surfing the web, playing board games with my Olive and pacing the floor, I have been grabbing props and holding mini photo shoots throughout the day, whenever I can muster up enough energy

I wish I had more props, but I cant go out and get any, so I have to make due with what I have around the house...old books, flowers, jewelry, binoculars, chairs, buttons...
Here are a few images I took today...

More night bokeh and the years largest moon..

I think I can be officially stamped a night bokeh addict.  I just cant help myself.  Im fascinated with not only the bokeh, but even more the play of movement, light and shadows.  Plus, its a lot of fun to shoot and what shows up on my camera never fails to surprise me.

Of course, the night of the largest moon of the year I am out and about, but not with any lens that could capture its size and beauty.  I did get these 2 sad images though.
Did any of you capture it or witness it?  It was truly grand!
