With the smartphone aunt J. sent me the November before last (quite liberating for a poor man), I finally had a digital camera to experiment and document with. Not a great camera, but good enough in good light.
All of the photo posts (the majority in 2015) are accessible via the photography tag, of course. I uploaded a few more, so here begins: a brief overview of 2015, plus little bits of history behind the photos, and those that didn’t make it for brevity, and not knowing where the heck to put them… and data limits.
An all-in-one would be kind of insane, so here is: part one: winter.
…But first, I want to apologize to my readers, and to myself. The turn of the year has been an emotional roller coaster…caused by me, amounting to the lateness of this, and then some. Sometimes I just can’t accept the reality around me. I get lost, begin to doubt myself, and my writing becomes awkward at best… I make a really bad hermit. So, sorry, my now-over 500 followers.
Okay… This winter overview begins with one of the very first photography subjects on the blog: snow. Most of the images here are high-def and “color-corrected,” including this newly “enhanced” 2014 photo:
For 2015, it wasn’t until the very end of the year that the first winter snow hit. It hasn’t snowed since—so far, an easy winter, though bitter cold on some days (22°F fell to 9°).
But a mild half-foot doesn’t compare to 2015 January… It just…kept…snowing.
To think, a week prior: blue skies.
Nine days later…
But a pain in the ass in shoveling and plowing doesn’t compare to deadly icicles…
Well, that’s what I have for winter, as defined by the calendar; the snow didn’t clear until April. Yeah, I don’t get around much. I’ll get in a few more pic uploads soon… if I don’t run out of data first.
Now, before I go, you may be wondering if I’d made any New Year Resolutions. The short answer is: no. I may set out to make efforts any time of the year, including, but not limited to: not standing so close to the heater that the back of my legs get heater-burned. Again. (Superficial; it’ll heal.)
Have a nice Friday evening!
