The pictures above were taken a week ago, when I went walking around in the fog. I didn't want to post too many last week and overwhelm you all. But I won't be getting out today to take new ones so...

I'm happy today - it's a holiday and I don't have to go to work, and that's enough to make me smile. I plan to indulge myself today. I'd love to get out for a camera walkabout, but the weather is cold and raw and wet and my arthritic knees are singing. I think I'll make art instead. I have a few ATC swaps I have to make cards for, and I've been wanting to dabble with some larger canvasses.

Yep, it's going to be a good day today.

Well, it's a week into 2007 and it was 67 degrees out today. El Nino has made the weather wacky. Instead of snow and arctic temperatures we're still stuck in fall, but without the color. Not that I'm complaining - I'll take warm and bleak over white and cold any day! Indeed, the trees are naked, but the grass is verdant and some plants are so confused they're blooming - like the pink viburnums, and the daffodils (which are already almost a foot high).

And because of the wide temperature fluctuations from day to night to day, there's been lots and lots of fog which I love and look for when I want to get out on a photographic walkabout. Fog makes everything mysterious, and mysterious is interesting to look at. So, because there was a fair amount of fog out this morning I got myself out of my warm bed and went walking. Here's some of the shots. One is turned on its side (the last one) purposely because it kinda looks like a surreal man with tree branch wings, and I like surreal.
