Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.

My husband and I took several walks during and after the snow storm yesterday and we got some pictures of the accumulation. I have this little $20 digital camera that I bought at Walmart that is a little hard to use, but it served it's purpose here.

I forgot how much I love taking pictures. In some ways, I get the same feeling of hyper-awareness as when I'm looking for images for haiku. I need to find that one fleeting image and when I find it, I need to be as steady and still as possible in order to capture on my cheap camera. The results aren't always perfect or what I expected, but they are a captured economy of image and time.
