Today was a big cleanup day after yesterday's massive snow fall, but last night I looked at another of my images from yesterday morning and of course could not resist posting another picture of main Street in the Winter storm. This picture is a different interpretation, which I think shows the Winter condition even better than yesterdays.
Well, we certainly will have a snowy Christmas. Today we got our first major snow storm of the season. I had to go downtown, which was quite a trip. Of course I had to mtake afew pictures and I mean just a few. This was the view of Main Street at about ten o'clock this morning. Of course not much traffic and certainly very few pedestrians. I was glad to be home and now time for some clean up.
I titled this picture Winter dance because it looked so much like a joyous celebration of the arrival of the Winter. Of course I could have named it "admiring my work" because the sculptor is sitting on the bench resting after several hours of work, creating his snow sculpture. Actually the art work depicts a crown, but there is definitely a feeling of dancers enjoying the event.
What a difference in weather between today, snowing, and yesterday, sunny, when I took this picture walking downtown. The two house and the two cars look, at first glance, similar. The almost similarities was what attracted me to this simple cityscape.
Last week Gerry and I went on a little photo excursion around the different North bay parks and beaches, photographing thew first signs of the coming Winter season. It was a good time to concentrate on some black and white images. Here is a picture showing the ice starting to form along the lake shore.
