Snow Day - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Snow Day
Because discoursing with _luaineach about her family's imminent camping trip in the Rincons has me thinking about A) how much I miss excursions to mountainous regions; B) how "snow guilt" affects parents who want their children to experience all the youthful pleasures in which they indulged; and C) I can finally stand to look for longer than a few seconds at shots taken with my 200mm lens that was stolen in December, 2003, along with all the other camera equipment I saved for as a teenager, I present you with two shots from our Christmas Eve drive up the Mount Lemmon Highway in December, 2002:

Bean had enormous fun making a snow man and then hurling snow off the edge of the mountain with her mom. I alternated between photographing their delight and the wonder of a desert landscape transformed just in time for the holiday:

I've always dreamed of having a white Christmas. Aside from my year in Germany, though, when the snow lay on the ground thin and soft and uneven, the closest I've come was here in Tucson. How ironic is that?

You didn't get a White Christmas in PA? We got them all the time--at least every three years or so. But this past year was the BEST.

We had flurries on Christmas Eve in 1977. That was pretty much it. We got plenty of snow, but it didn't come until January for some reason. I loved your pictures from your Winter Break visit!

This past winter was magical, I think. Everything's so quiet when it's covered in snow. So beautiful.

I'm constantly in awe -- as are many of my LJ friends and non-LJ readers who read them -- of your images. You are amazing. Not to mention that you have a circle of friends who look astonishingly cool and attractive!
