Eastport Ice Patterns
Here in the Baltimore-Annapolis area, we were blessed with a very mild winter until mid-January. It's gotten a lot colder since then, and prior to becoming a born-again photographer, that kind of weather would have kept me shut indoors.
This year, though, I thought the freeze-your-tuchis-off conditions could help snap me out of my photo slump, and it just might have worked. I happily shot away among the boats and the ice, ignoring my numbing fingers, for almost an hour.

As usual, Dave Beckerman in New York City has had a lot of great images on his photo blog lately. I was particularly impressed by this delicate and peaceful image taken at the Central Park reservoir. When I woke up Sunday morning to a gentle snowfall, the memory of Dave's resevoir photo inspired me to schlep myself outside and try a few shots myself. Here's what I came up with:
Snowy Morning - Maryland WWII Monument, Annapolis
Hello Again, Hello
Another forum I participate in uses Hello for posting images, and I thought I'd give it a try. What I don't like about Hello is that I can't control the layout to the extent I can otherwise. On the other hand, I do like the way you can easily include captions, and, most of all, the ability for the viewer to click on an image to see a larger version. We'll see if I stick with Hello.
