Checking through February's "stuff" for the most heart connected image. I like how the button says, "a monthly practice". I'm just going to mull that over a bit. Practice. Hmmmm. I shall keep those musing to myself, lest I fill the page with blabbering on and really, I've still got stuff to do today. But practice is one of those words that makes you think.
OK, here's the winner. I've even shocked myself.
Don't know. Just like it. It's a hate-love relationship. Hate the snow; love the image? That might work. Well it's my heart and my connection, so yes, it's a hate-love vs. a love-hate. Just like spinning class. Hate it on the way in; love it on the way out. There's a little hate that lingers on tight muscles which I blame on STEVEN each time they hurt throughout the day. Poor Steve, he has no idea that I curse him for a whole day after class.
And I curse the snow. Often. Daily. Continually in a on-going way as it falls, and messes and depresses me. And it has been a trying February even for skiers and snow enthusiasts. It has been a trying month for me.
But....I like this photo. It reminds me of what I've been through.
Mainly I like the more technical parts of the image. The way that I noticed the dark trees on my street between the house at number 38 and the one at 36 would make a good contrast with the white snow. I was just walking Tula around the block...there weren't a whole lot of photo "ops".
I like that I chose to blur the trees and caught just a touch of snow in focus. I like remembering that I soldiered on, wrapping my camera in a plastic bag that held asparagus from the grocery a few days before....just to get out there and get my photo for the day-and get the dog walked too. It was a two-fer.
I like the title I chose which now holds a different meaning than it did the day "after" when I processed it. Maybe that title is about more than a day. Maybe it is about a season, or a chapter or maybe something even way more profound that I can't possibly identify at this time. It may be a moment of hindsight on foresight (or vice versa).....
.....or it may snow again next week.
That's my PHC for the month of February. Thanks for your visit. I shall keep practicing so I can check in next month....when perhaps the last of the snow will be melting into oblivion. That would be awesome.
