I woke up yesterday morning to find the temperature, once again, well below freezing. I can’t recall a time we’ve had so many days with lows in the teens and 20s here in south Louisiana ….after all, this is south Louisiana! This is supposed to be the sub-Tropics! And it’s humid, so of course the cold feels ever so much worse! I know, I know, I can hear many of you laughing, living up where winter is SERIOUS business. But here we’re not made for it, our blood’s too thin, our houses too drafty and no wardrobe for it…
Anyway though, I layered up with what little I have in the way of cold-weather gear and went out for a little local photowalk. There was ice on the ground and frost everywhere and I quickly forgot the cold (sort of). Below are some of the images I made on my stroll.
As always, the process of actually photographing is such a humbling process. I find myself in awe of the world around me, the beautiful available in the midst of the mundane. On my little walkabout, in your yard or garden, wherever we pick up our cameras and dare to really try and see.
