Photo 52, Week 3: Landmark
I really wanted to go on an outing this week to photograph some local landmarks.
We have so many, it would have been hard to narrow it down,
but it would have been fun to at least capture a few.
The outing got put on hold, but I did manage to capture one of my favorites.
Really, if you have tasted this stuff,
Cheesecake Factory would qualify as a landmark in your book too.
Another of my favorite things showed up Friday morning
when I drove the kids to the bus stop because it was so cold.
Good thing I decided to be nice,
or I would have totally missed it.
Once the sun came up, the blue sky and white snow drew me to the window,
but it was the birds who kept me there.
They are definitely some of my winter favorites!
It's true what they say,
"Birds of a feather flock together"
Over the last two days we have had several kinds of birds,
but only one kind in any given tree at any point in time.
The texture is interesting.
Today I shot through the kitchen blinds,
which I wouldn't normally do,
in order to keep a lower profile.
Somehow, I got a vertical texture
that makes my photos look like a watercolor.
And while we're talking about favorites,
what could be more favorite than Saturday?
Homemade cinnamon rolls?
We did have to shovel (and yes, I did help).
(Shhh…don't tell Ben I captured him with long sleeves and pants.
And gloves. But no socks. He is wearing down on his shorts resolve.)
I went looking for my perfect snowflake, but there was too much melting going on.
I did use my tripod, though, and I think when I find my flake, it will be pretty great!
