“Signs of Life”

“What kinds of things can you excavate that speak of these inner workings? Look for magic today. Of life. Of hope. Of beauty. Of all the wonder that is happening right under our noses.”  These were the words of Ms. Clark today.  Today in Western Massachusetts, we are having our first “real” snowstorm of the season.  School was cancelled. I’d say there’s somewhere in the ballpark of 15 to 18 inches on the ground.  I wondered, how, on a day like today, would I ever find something to go with Ms. Clark’s lovely words?  Well,  the excavation part probably wouldn’t be too hard, but I didn’t really think that was the type of photo the prompt was looking for.  After trying several different ideas today, this is the picture I took today that pleased me the most:


Teddy got to be my sign of life.  There was something about this shot of him lying in the middle of the snowstorm, taking  it all in.  Normally, Teddy is a very large force in our lives, but I think the perspective here makes him look small.

 Food Mosiac

Scott’s got an assignment we can sink our teeth into this month: Food Photography.  I could use some hints for this one.  How do you take your food photos from everyday to extraordinary?  I’d be grateful for any ideas or links you could leave me in the comments section.  Have your photos posted and linked over at Scott’s place by Wednesday, January 26.

Got Snow?

We do!


This is certainly the most snow Teddy has ever seen.  All this after I was just blogging about how we rarely seem to get hit with more than a foot of snow around here.  These shots were taken around 8:30 this morning and it is still going.  I’ll be back later today with the photo prompt picture, when I figure it out, and probably more snow pictures.  It’s a snow day today – no school for us.
