I spent a full, fun day in the warm companionship of good friends today. Marc, Susan and I delivered our entries for the Washington Arts Association yearly members show which has it’s opening on February 8th. Wouldn’t you know that it would snow today. We didn’t let it deter us from dropping off our prints then proceeding on to have a nice lunch at Marty’s. Over wonderful hot soup we talked about photography and art, and the difficulties of trying to make art, and money, while being true to one’s own vision. After lunch we took the long way to Morris, where we visited with our friends, Louis and Theresa. It snowed all day and as I drove, Susan, then Marc, then Susan again, would ask me to stop or turn around so photographs could be made. The snow made for slow going, but that only made it better. By the time I finally got home the light had almost gone, but I had enough light to make this image.
I’ve been fortunate in the time I’ve lived in Woodbury. It’s a small town, and one might be excused in thinking the opportunities for meeting like-minded people would be small; not the case. I’ve been blessed with friends I’ve made here; their kindness, talent, and warmth. Thanks guys, I wasn’t cold all day. Did I mention it was a fun day?
