Actually we are not even a month into true winter but wanted to tell you the blog will be on mid-winter break for the next week. Will miss you and will catch up with you upon my return.
Jack was invited to an birthday party at the ice skating rink. He was so excited. Mark took him.
We came an hour later for “free skate” but I didn’t don skates.
A good photo op for Grandma, who happened to have the real camera, not just the iPhone.
Lots of reflections, not enough light or too much light.
On the way home I got to photograph a brightly lit house display as I was in the passenger seat.
Now a photo a day for a week to capture the present. As it is, right in the moment. The Weekly Photo Challenge. NOW
New Jammies. A log on the fire.
How you change your angle a few degrees and the light is so different, always learning.

I stopped at Exit 178- Cambridge and popped into the K-Mart to get a phone cord charger.
Saw these Cosmic Hula Hoops and bought 4 for the grandkids as I was on my way. Had a repeat light writing blog in mind as I drove the rest of the way to Columbus.
So four hula hoops, with blinking lights, plus four grandchildren willing to experiment with light equals a fun night photography effort
They helped Grandma capture a different kind of light writing in the backyard when it got dark outside.
I’d say the first day of retirement was a good one!
We used lightning sticks before which might have been easier to maneuver but not as bright.
All four at once. They were already in their jammies.

A few individual efforts and the group
We will try another night.
The weekly photo challenge is Early Bird The golden hour BEFORE sunrise. This is just at the moment of sunrise on St. George Island State Park, Florida where I was visiting dear friends last summer. The last morning we were there we drove and then walked to the end of the Island. It was a beautiful sunrise.
Another early bird- in a tidal pool, not at the State Park but by the house where we were staying.
This exhibit’s over now but I’ll post what my sister and I saw at the Fashion Instititute of Technology while I visited on Spring Break.
We had a lot of fun looking at the fashions and reading the accompanying magazine pieces.
The first piece we saw is the coat
(Cell phone photo :-( the only one I took)
The opening of video Bacall hosts in 1968 -Bacall and the Boys about four men (designers) Christian Dior’s Marc Bohan, Pierre Cardin, Emanuel Ungaro, Yves St Laurent

A man and his dog. Central Park Sunday. He was calling and waving to his family. Before the Greek Parade on Fifth.
Is this a Basenji? no, says Dog Expert Juilia. Thanks She sent this pic of an Ibizan Hound
I asked these girls if they would pose with their selfie stick so I could show my high school students in photography class next week. Later I asked where they were from….. Long Island!
Food line on Sixth Avenue with reflection in the fountain some birds are using as a bird bath

My Floridian friend Kristin is braving the elements and skiing in Colorado.
This is the view upon awakening. She emailed it to me this morning.
I thought it fit in nicely with the theme of the week- serenity.
Thanks Kristin. Was the world muffled?
