Today, December 30th, 2010 it is 60 outside! Tomorrow we are suppose to have thunderstorms. While I am thankful that there is no ice or bad roads or a city shut down because of a blizzard, I should wouldn’t mind winter to return. I love the light and shadows that winter provides and the colors. I guess I should be careful what I wish for but the snow a few weeks back was so pretty and the frosty morns give me good reason to smuggle my camera under my coat while taking Bear for a walk. Did you know that Bear is shedding because it has gotten warmer. I have almost brushed out a full “sweater” of Bear fur.
The winter, I hate it. I mean I hate the cold and gray and they way my body feels and my mind. But…. and this is a big but, all that dull, gray and **sometimes** bright light creates moody and interesting images. The other morning there was rain and cold and gray. I went out and embraced it. Didn’t like it, but I did and am happy with the results!

Okay.... while not black and white I love the gray and red together....very wintery!
