Getting Houston all excited about a few inches of snow then not delivering is just plain mean. We get it so rarely. I spend every winter drooling over everyone stunning winter photography and feeling so left out. Oh, I know it can really suck too. Oh I know it gets old, not just cold. I was born in Wyoming.
I shot these images last weekend, in our beautiful 70 degree temperatures. Then I spent all week planning my photos for this weekend....the weekend we were guaranteed to get up to 4 inches of snow! OK, I knew it would not be as much as they said, but how many times can they say "Everyone within our viewing area will get some snow"?
I produce high school theatre (for those of you who are new to my blog) & the school canceled two of our last three performances, costing a huge amount of money. I'm cool with the schools closing, but WHERE'S THE SNOW?????
For all the photographic plans I had, my son had more! He made a list of thngs he was going to do at this park around the corner from our house. He was going to use a sled, make snow angels, build a snow man, and catch flakes on his tongue.
So now guess who's trying to comfort whom? There is nothing so humbling as a four year old trying to comfort his middle-aged mom when they missed out on the snow! It really puts things in perspective.
So while shooting last weekend I played with my fisheye lens,
and my lensbaby composer lenses,
and my macro lens.
Maybe today I will still take D2 to the park & we will photograph the tiny ice cycles with my fun lenses. Our nephew, Toby & his girlfriend Val with her daughter Jalisa joined us last week & I bet they will join us again...especially since I have butterfly wings for Jalisa to wear!
I'm not giving up hope just yet. Perhaps the snow will arrive before the warmth returns. Send your snow vibes my way and I will share the results soon!
