Both are very interesting. The second one keeps pulling me back to look again and again, so I guess you could say it's magnetic.

I went with brother on a trip to photograph the remains of a decaying pier. He was so disappointed!

This is what it used to look like-


And this-

Ironically, I saw these just after seeing Slobodan's "A Bridge Too Far," and my first reaction was: "A bridge not far enough."


The sunny original is quite elegant. The later images are quite sad (but thanks for showing us the ravages of Time.)

Actually Eric, those were dancing girls with tutus. Surprised you didn't pick up on that 8)

But after your ice images, I thought why not something almost as cold. Taken on yesterday's walk.

Super images! I love those ice 'mushrooms' clinging to the wooden uprights. We just had the same thing here, after the water over a flooded field receded, leaving rings of ice around the trees. We only rarely see that here. See below:

That's cool. Something about graduation of those colors -yellows to blues- that is intriguing.

My initial reaction is that there is not much to photograph on a winter walk. But I always surprise myself.

Both nice. First is quite subtle, but deep. Second is more dramatic.

To follow the blue or to follow the white? That is the question.

I had to tamp down the blue quite a bit. But I decided to leave some in as it looked more natural and interesting. So if shadows produce blue light, and shades of gray are like waves of time, what is an irrregular white wave- a stitch in time!

"A stitch in time!" I like it (and the photo, too.)

Thanks Eric.

But you know Eric, "these little town blues whites ... are melting away..." just when I want to be a part of it...
You know the rest ... from a photographer that never sleeps...

This scene will probably be much less interesting in another week or two.

This February has been awesome. Some snow and many sunny days, so unlike most February days. My brother and I just had to get out even though the snow is rapidly melting and not much is left.

Wispy winter day 1


Wispy winter day 2
