to My World
in Her Hand
My wife had something in
her hand and I had her in my eye,
and all those colors. The photo on
the wall is by local photographer

The only way I've found to photograph
in a heavy snow is to carry an umbrella.
Even then, the camera gets wetter than
I'd like, and people seeing me think
I'm addled, that I can't tell the difference
between rain and snow. Here's a neighbor
in front of our house.
in the Fog
This photo was taken by a professional.
Do not try this in your own vehicle unless
you have experience eating a hamburger,
talking on your cell phone, and adjusting
your radio while driving. If you have
mastered those arts, taking a photo while
driving is just as safe.
in the Bathroom Window
One of the delights of one-pane windows
is that frost forms on them. The bathroom
gets cold, but beautiful, especially
if you look closely.
Our warm house melts the snow on the roof,
which forms three-foot long icycles as
it runs off.
My neighbor has retired and has
much more fun than me, who can
barely remember having a sled.
I love the abstract patterns that road
ice, snow and wet produce on the sides
of vehicles. In this case, I cheated,
by sandwiches two photos of my Ford
Ranger together so they overlap.
People come to eat the soup, not to
be photographed. On a typical Thursday
night in winter, 25 to 30 people arrive
with bread, wine, salad, desserts,
and other comestibles. If this sounds
good to you, I highly recommend you
give it a try. All you need is a large
pot and a determination equal to my
wife's. It also helps to have lots
of soup bowls and spoons, often found
at garage sales.
Hall in the Snow
Yes, I removed the electrical wires
to give this a 19-century feel. So
shoot me! (with a camera, please.)
