A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
We were not happy at all this morning, in fact we were royally peeved, when we opened the blinds and found that snow had fallen during the early morning hours. We hope that the snow and the temperature drop didn't ruin the trees that were nearly in full bloom before the snow fell. We'll see in a day or so what happened.
When we live in a place and see the same environment every day as we drive the streets and move around the town, we pretty much just take the scenery for granted and ignore it. One of the great advantages of photography is that photography forces us to appreciate the details of our environment in a way that passive quick glances can never appeal to us.
