calm before the storm

 

 

 

 

the stillness is palpable
as a snowstorm approaches
I feel the same excitement
as when I was young

 

 

the polar vortex

 

 

stopped by for a visit
seems an appropriate end
to the month of January

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

undercover

 

 

 

0° outside today

 

 

 

 

recluse

 

 

“the comfort of reclusion, the poetry of hibernation”
~ Proust

 

looking forward to a little downtime
as a stormy weekend approaches

after a heavy snowstorm

 

 

 “There is a saying about seeing: Only a few people can see but most people don’t even look. And that says a lot to me. You can only see if you have something in your mind to bring to the picture. The camera is just the least important adjunct to your ideas. Your observations are important because they’re you. The camera is just a gadget you can carry on in your hand or around your neck or on a tripod.”
