Snowy Wonderland

I loved all the beautiful snow we got last week, but sadly it didn't last long.  Now it's just frigid temps and practically no snow, and it's kind of bumming me out.  Especially when I look at these photos I took last Thursday and Friday after we got a couple inches of fluffy, white snow...
After it had been snowing all day on Thursday, I decided to leave work a bit early (fearing bad traffic/drivers) and then headed over to French Park with Cheese for a quick walk before it got dark.
Cheesy really wanted to play with the kids that were sledding!
I'm so used to going on these little outings with Antoine, so there's someone to hold onto Cheese while I snap away with my camera.  Trying to hold Cheese (who keeps pulling me in every direction) while I'm taking pictures proved to be trickier than I expected! Plus after about 10 minutes my hands felt like they were going to snap right off!  It was still a good time though.  

The following night I snapped a couple photos of our backyard when I got home from work, just as the sun was a about to set.

I looking forward to hopefully a little more snow this winter.  Antoine and I have high hopes of a possible sledding adventure with the Cheese-man, so we shall see.  I shouldn't complain too much about the lack of snow though, considering I just got two paid days off from work because the university closed. 


Fall on Film

Happy new year everyone!  My new year celebration was pretty mellow since I've never been a big new years person.  Antoine and I just lounged around and ate some homemade flan.  I spent most of my new years day off from work baking like a crazy person, because that's what I do!  Anyway, back to 35mm film...

Along with the roll of black & white I had developed, I also took in an ancient color roll with 36 exposures on it.  I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out, but I'm pretty pleased.  It's basically a hodgepodge of Fall pictures, some from Spring Grove Cemetery, some from French Park and some from Wellington, OH.

Can you tell I have a thing for French Park?

Handsome man!

These photos make me miss Fall.  I've hated this in-between weather we've been having lately.  I, unlike a lot of people out there, love the snow, so I'm very pleased to see the flakes falling this morning.  Stay safe and warm out there!
