Just a Baby

A Baby Snowman

A Baby Snowman

I encountered this 6 inch tall snowman last week at campus. Wonder what his name should be and where’s his/her hat?

Have a great week!

Bicyclist on a cold morning near campus

Bicyclist on a cold morning near campus

Walked to a coffeehouse last week to meet a friend for a cup of coffee and their breakfast enchiladas. 🙂 The temperature was somewhere between 25 and 30 degrees  (F). I am still surprised how many people in Fort Collins ride bicycles in all sorts of weather. They just gear up for whatever nature brings on. I’m actually envious of their commitment to riding.

Morning Sunshine at the Table

Morning Sunshine at the Table

More lines catching my eye but the first thing to draw me was the light. Love morning light and this was all about the light! The color of the light was lovely but my camera washed out the highlights, nor could I seem to find anything to please me with Lightroom. Finally converted it to black and white in Silver Efex and was then a happy camper. It tickles me and causes a smile. 🙂

Yes, Bluer is a Word

Blue Skies over the CSU Soccer Practice Field

I love blue skies! So, after getting off the bus and walking to Morgan Library on Colorado State University campus I had to smile and point my camera to the northern skies. I find this time of the year to be a favorite. We begin to have cooler temperatures making for a better night of sleep and refreshing mornings. And, I think the blue skies are bluer! 🙂

Snow Shovels

Bright Colored Snow Shovels

Bright Colored Snow Shovels

This past week they were giving away snow shovels on campus. No way were you going to misplace his shovel because they were bright orange shovels. I did not ask why but watched students carrying them around campus and on the buses. Anyway, it came at the best time as snow is predicted to arrive tonight and into tomorrow. So, in anticipation of the cold and snow I put on a crock pot of vegetable soup. Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend and praying you have a great week.

Redd's Wicked Apple

Redd’s Wicked Apple

When I began drinking in the late 60’s we had a handful of beers to choose from: Coors, Hamms, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Budwieser, Michelob and others. That’s not the case now. Go into any liquor store now a days and there are 100’s of different beers to choose from. Someone tried one of these then left it on the curb. Not sure if it was empty but thought this can made for an interesting image.
