Snow Dusting -- third try to be winter--sigh

Since there wasn't much snow, I looked for oddities to photograph and liked this pattern.
Light snow covering on bush leaves.
Just thought I was taking a photo of the snow dusting on leaves that hadn't been raked up and discovered red berries on another plant also! CLICK to enlarge and see for yourself!
Thought this one just had some red berries contrasting in the snow BUT look near the top near the 2nd red berry and see a water bubble I also captured. . .
Side by side, two different shoe prints. Neither were mine.

It got very dark fast after my little stroll following the brief snowfall so I headed home but decided to see if a bench on a trail was still there. . . then I re-traced my walk near apartment building to see if I could capture the things I tried to yesterday in the dark. I was a bit more successful although I don't know what I did differently. Yesterday, the photos were mostly black.

This was the most snow I could find in one place. . . pretty sad huh?
This weed was taken by turning the camera. It uploaded sideways but I decided to leave it. . . kinda odd huh?
I was going to catch the bus and head home but decided to hunt out this bench along part of the Discovery Trail. It was too dark to walk the trail even tho it was heading in the direction of home. The bus arrived a few minutes later and I went home, hoping that the snow expected this weekend is more than a dusting. . . I guess I will go move the snowflake on my calendar to 3 snow days this winter so far.

Of course, I ,like the bench under the snow. But I really like the two pictures with tracks; They are telling a story,and let us imagine so many things about those who left them...You are more and more gifted with your new camera!

Hi Paulie! Thanks for checking up on me. All is well, I've been blogging on my dog's blog and neglecting my Hustle Hag. There's not much personal stuff over there, just fun with the dogs. I've had both blogs the same length of time. If you'd like to take a look see it is:

I had a great time at the beach last summer and we already have a deposit on a place for next summer!

I'm looking forward to a great Christmas, my sister and fam is coming down from Kansas to spend a week with us! I hope your Christmas is wonderful!

I love these pictures! Especially the one with the red berries peeking through and the one of the tracks.

I adore the photos of the bushes, especially with the red berries poking through. You always have the knack of finding the most photogenic things.

Good pictures of your snow dusting. I also like the little red berries shining through the snow. Love the bench with the snow on it.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .

Blog Your Blessings Sunday
