I’m special I took quite a few photos while walking in what passes for winter around here. In fact, we had close to a foot of snow. This was the most snow that I’d seen since I’ve been living in Charlotte. However, out of all of the photos that I took, this was my favorite one. This one, I didn’t go looking for, per se. I didn’t have to think about it. For the most part, the day had been…

I saw these folks when I went for a walk this afternoon. The dog was pretty excited about it and stopped by to greet me before continuing with giving his sleigh ride. Everyone seemed to be taking things in stride. Even as I type this, the snow continues to fall and even increase. As a matter of fact, I hear a little sleet mixed in with it. My E-M1 performed flawlessly. I had to wipe the lens a couple of…

Good prediction, weather folks. It’s really coming down. I like it. Had fun tweaking with sliders and trying something a bit different.

The temperature was about 15° F, but the sun was shining brightly. I did have fun watching Hobbs slip and slide on the ice. I saw him take several nose-first dives to the ice. He’s short, so not to far to go…

The other day, I was thinking that it was almost time for our annual snowfall. I went back through my photos of the last few years, looked at the dates of the snowfalls, and determined that the snow would fall sometime between 1/20 and 2/1. I promptly forgot about it. Yesterday, I looked at the forecast for Charlotte and saw that they were calling for a “Wintery Mix”. In general, this means snow and sleet. As I was riding along…
