it’s been a while

From a work perspective, the time from October 1st until just about now is insane.  So blogs, social media and general life maintenance gets put on a back burner.   When I get a breath, I find things such as, having forgotten to renew my car tag (going on Monday), having to get caught up on vet visits – my Chewie and Snoopy which I would continue to not remember this one – and taking the tree down (I swear it’s coming down this weekend).

However, I also start to get out again.  Having got caught in Georgia’s snow disaster in 2014, I waited with baited breath this past time to get some good shots.  There was zero snow on the ground, but we did end up with ice again.  This has made for some interesting shots.  I did go out in general to shoot in black and white rather than just applying the layer in post production, but got some color too.  Here are some of my favorites.

Not so warm Georgia

Well it is much better than my old home New Jersey.   As of yet (fingers crossed) no snow or ice, but you can find some icy spots if you look.  And one of the things that makes photography interesting is how you can make something look like a scene that is a bit different than what it really is.  This picture is of a small man-made waterfall outside of a restaurant, but looks like the banks of an icy stream.
