CSU Oval

CSU Oval

We awoke to light snow yesterday morning then watched it increase to a beautiful winter snowfall. I left home early to find a spot near a window at Mugs coffeehouse to watch it snow. Glad I did. When I left an hour and a half later I walked across the street to the oval on campus for this image. Very few people were out due to the weather and it was Martin Luther King Day so there were almost no tracks in the snow. It stayed cold all day even though the sun came out in the afternoon. It was 2 degrees at 6:30 this morning. Brrrr!

Filled With Gratitude

A Look and Feel of Winter

A Look and Feel of Winter

Not many photographs lately as the inspiration to frame and press the shutter button has not been there. I still see the scenes and look for them. This was taken back in early November near one of my coffee shops.

I’m now sitting in a coffee shop after a busy Saturday. It’s been a day to connect with both family and friends so not much solo time, a different experience for me. But, there is a contentment within me. This past week has been a time to reflect on my life. There have been no extraordinary moments or life changing events to talk about, just life as it happens.  It has been a good year so I am filled with gratitude for the life I have. May this coming year bring joy, peace, good health into your life. Thanks for being a part of this blogging life.

Here are a dozen images from 2017 that I liked. Happy New Year and hope the coming year is full of good things for you.

This the scene I noticed in the alley as I came out of the parking garage in Old Town. Light and shadows. Shot shot this in black and white also but preferred the color image this time.

Wall Graffiti

Colors and Patterns

Colors and Patterns

This is the side of a metal building someone has painted a mural on. It is massive in size and depicts a couple of hummingbirds that must be 10 feet tall. I am standing along the path leading to the bus stop and can’t step back any further. It was the abstract essence that called me when standing this close. Bright colors!

Sunrise

Sunrise on Campus

Sunrise on Campus

We have had some very pretty sunrises lately. I took this one this past Friday morning as I walked across the parking lot of the Lory Student Center on my way to Mugs Coffee shop for my fix. What was enjoyable for me in this image was the texture of clouds. Yesterday was lines and chaos, today was patterns and chaos. This is a jpeg file from the camera. All I did was bring out a touch of the blue.

They actually make a pretty good pizza. I haven’t tried the subs but they look awesome.
