Standing in one spot and rotating 180 degrees. Little snow in the backyard and 4 inches in the frontyard. Temperatures above freezing now so hopefully it is all going away.
Just a dusting of snow last night but cold enough to make ice jewels
When I started my photography journey many, many years ago my hero was W. Eugene Smith, a brilliant documentary photographer who photographed entirely in black and white. Smith was on assignment overseas for Life magazine during World War II and he was brutally frank in what he photographed. His war photography had a deep effect on him and his career almost came to an end when he was wounded by shell fragments. It took him two years to recover both physically and mentally – very dark times. In 1946 he picked up his camera and one of his first photographs was of his two young children walking towards the light through a dark tunnel of trees. He called it “The Walk to Paradise Garden”. The result was enough to rekindle his photographic career.
I think for a lot of us these past two years have been a dark time but I also think there is a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. I wish all my followers a Safe, Hopeful and Healthy 2022.
These two young deer came by today to check out the birdseed. They are looking very healthy in their Winter fur. Despite the cold they must appreciate the reprieve from the deer fly that torment them leaving them looking ragged and unhealthy.
