winter, warm and cool
I need to get back into the habit of taking photos with a more artistic eye, rather than just snapshots of my kids. For the winter theme this week, I gleaned photos from my archives over the past few years. But as I scoured my photo streams for wintery photos, I realized that what I have is a collection of cool and warm tones, and it made me think of how they perfectly reflect what winter is truly like here in the not-quite-north and not-quite-south.
I used to struggle with winter when we lived further north, but here I love winter. And if ever it gets miserably cold to the point that I am not loving it, it tends to relent and swing back into a mild spell. The opportunities to play in the snow always come, but like a polite guest, never stay too long to wear out their welcome. And jacket-only days happen reliably here and there. Also, it does not stay overcast, but the sun is out quite a bit. To me this is winter at its best.
