March in Ohio means snow, ice, rain, then more of that again. Sometime in that order, sometimes not. That leaves the area constantly cold and wet, but with some hope in sight.
The reflections everywhere remind me of looking at them in the sidewalk on the cold walks to school. I was always anxious for the last of it to melt away and warm weather to start again. Same feelings today.
I didn’t get a photo today. When that happens I go back a few days and see what didn’t make it before and choose from those. Some days you can get a bunch, others life gets in the way.
Seagulls are my favorite birds to watch. They are supreme survivalists and opportunists. They show up everywhere, from the deserts to the oceans. They’re not afraid of anything and they’re always checking us humans out to see if we’re got anything for them.
These birds seemed to actually enjoy the snowstorm.
Tonight was a fun night. See the guy poking his head around the corner? He had a problem with me taking a photo of the sign and wanted to argue about it. I left when he told me to wait right there because he’d be back. LOL.
Street photography intrigues me because of this idea. There’s no law against taking photos in the street. It’s 100% legal, but maybe not safe. What’s fun that’s safe anyhow?
I’m guessing that this odd footprint pattern was made by the way a snowblower operator stood next to his machine as he plowed. That – or penguins have shoes in Ohio now.
Not much to say about today’s photo. It lacks a subject. It’s just snow. That’s how today went though. It was cold. I went to work.
The end – kind of.
This photo may or may do much for others, but for me as an amateur photographer, it does a few things.
- It made a bad winter day less bad by making pause to appreciate the beauty of the snow.
- It makes me realize that I need to concentrate on getting subject. Just about anything added to this would have made it interesting and beautiful.
- It makes me realize I should have spent more time here. There’s a better photo here, I just didn’t spend enough time going after it.
