In honour of the winter storms

Posted by on Tuesday, 17 January, 2012

While I continue to work on being less negative, I’ll spare you with words and instead ply you with images during this past Sunday’s dusting of snow:

This time around I opted to play some more with texture, pattern, and chaos. This series lacks the rhythm, clean lines, and simplicity in the shots from the Chinese Garden previously posted, but seems to make up for the chaotic nature by capturing some of the drama in wintertime.  The sun came out about halfway through shooting, so you can see a shift in contrast and reflection. Seeing as the weather was very monochromatic, black and white imagery stood out as most suitable when I was post processing these, though you will see tiny hints of colour in some.

The last shot above, of course, being a “special” extra: a bad self portrait. You’re welcome. 🙂

 

The Great PDX snow-in of 2008

Posted by on Sunday, 21 December, 2008

Ok… thus far we have received 10 inches of snow, and the forecast is calling for another 7+ by the end of tonight. Temps have been hovering in the low 20’s for the past week or so…. this is unheard of for this area!!!! We’re typically in the 30s for the lows and upper 40s for the highs this time of year, and -maybe- with an inch or less of snow that only sticks for a day. We’re going on a week of this now, and it doesn’t sound like it will be melting off for another week…

We’re doing fine; though Jean is missing a bit of work because of it. We can walk to our local grocer so we’re stocked up and able to get things if needed.

That said, here are some pictures; http://picasaweb.google.com/acdntlpoet/SnowStormDec2008#
