i should set that last photo as my display picture or something. IT APTLY SUMS UP MY FEELINGS ABOUT THE WEATHER.
Please feel free to use it if you want to. :)
Lovely, and at the same time I can see why advertising like that is so effective, if you have to live in it for weeks on end.
I wonder what the weather's like in Singapore today? Does it ever snow there?
I especially like the exotic taxi in the white world.
I also snapped a couple of snowy ice cream vans.
A megalithic camera would have to be stationary I think. A sort of stone-built camera obscura- with a stone shutter it would take four men with staves to roll and lever into place.
I like photos no 2 & 4 best. The broken railings and misty houses are so evocative, they remind me of the times it snowed in my childhood. The brightly coloured taxi promising sun and warmth in the midst of the snow is a wonderful juxtaposition.
It's much milder here. We just had rain.
4 is my favourite. That taxi was a gift.
It's thawing now- which is really rather a shame.
My goodness! You look like us!
We weren't expecting it. I woke up, looked out the window and the neighbour's roof was white.
You have snow already? Yesterday we had 60 degrees, following a light rain. Weird weather! 25 years ago today we had a snowstorm that was deep enough to cancel Sunday church.
Mark Twain said of New England weather that if one does not care for it, one should just wait a minute and it will change. So true.
That true of English weather too. You can go through all four seasons in a single day. Ailz and I were discussing this yesterday- and decided we had the best climate in the world.
I like the way that things sound when there's been a snowfall. Muffled up close, clear far away. Changes the whole 'room-tone'.
Yes. It's like we've entered a parallel universe.
I love the sequence of these pictures: two monochrome landscapes - so that I'm peering at them, trying to decide if they are actually in B & W or not - then some points of light (and a green light too, just to prepare the theme) and then bang! it's uniquely Singapore. Brilliant!
That wasn't intended, but I see what you mean.
I don't understand why the third picture came out blue rather than sepia. I suppose there must have been some subtle shift in the light. Or perhaps it was because by then I was on higher ground and the mist was thinner.
This is what it looks like in My neck of the woods today - except for the colourful taxi.
I love this sequence of photos. Dammit, I HATE snow, but it sure is pretty. It softens landscapes and covers up bad stuff, and makes it look like good stuff.
I love snow when it's all new and pristine. If it then insists on hanging around for days getting all dirty and slushy it becomes a bore.
That last photo is the best! Colour against all the black and white and grey....wonderful!
How far across the UK does the snow extend?
It's very very cold for Seville. I think a good part of Europe is in an arctic grip.
The last one is my favourite too.
The snow isn't across the whole country, but I believe there's a lot of it about.
Oh, that first pic just became my new desktop here at work.
I had to stamp my foot to get that crow to take off. :)
I believe there's more to come. Perhaps you'll get lucky tonight.
Tony, these are marvelous. I can't decide--oh, the green car is perfect against the white and the fence, but the bird flying--okay, that is my favorite.
The sun is shining today. Very pretty too- sun on snow- but somehow not as photogenic as yesterdays's mist.
