taken from up on Page Hill during the snow days.

I'm very sorry postings have been erratic as of late... A recent career opportunity is sucking every minute bit of energy and free time from my life. It will all settle down eventually and become routine and I will be able to have and enjoy free time again.. this is what I keep telling myself!

I'm going to schedule at least 10 days worth of photos and so I offer up apologies if I don't respond to comments in a timely manner. My Google Reader says I have 210 unread posts in my "daily photo" folder! I miss you guys and the glimpses into your world!

thank you for your continued support,

I've walked down this street a hundred times and I never noticed this sign attached to the side of the building. New discoveries!

A quiet place to sit and reflect

...not that you'd do it in this weather! This snowy bench is in the church yard of Saints Peter & Paul.

Changing Views: Feb

I've cheated just a wee bit in that this photo was taken during the first week of the month rather than the second... but let's be honest here, there's not a great deal of difference in what Jan vs. Feb will look like otherwise. That being said as I was going past this spot yesterday there is still an awful lot of snow still on the ground around Buckingham. I've visited nearby towns and not seen anything like the accumulations that my area received!

Fleece Yard in the snow

am I late for Friday's photo?! What a strange week this has been... the weather has me all turned around, home, when I should be a work, trapped when I long to drive and see... but thoroughly enraptured with everything being at a stand still.

the postie

"Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these courageous couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" -Herodotus

a saying most often shortened to ""Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor gloom of night" and associated with the US Postal Service...

any guesses on what they are discussing?

Snow Day

The UK has experienced today some of the heaviest snow seen in over 18 years... I'm lucky in that I didn't have to travel today... sweet blissful day off! That being said I had appointments to get to in town and thought I had better capture the moment so off I went skidding and sliding into town.

City Daily Photo: Paths and Passages

Today is the first of the month and that means "Theme Day"! February's theme is Paths and Passages.

It is also an exercise in learning that duplicating a photo is nearly impossible! I keep getting drawn back to this footbridge across the river and the previous photo I took was, to me at least, amazing. I still like this one but it certainly has a different feel to it. I know the lighting is different, the foliage is different, the crop is different, etc. But there's something appealing about the eerie quality the original had.
