    It does seem like a very interesting festival

  2. Hi Leslie. I too love this photo. Wow. It has an otherworldly quality. Is that why you’ve been interested in the Vampyr film? Your photo reminds me of the b & w film. Hmm.

      This is one of my favorite photos. I took it when the first winter we moved into our current home. I used some kind of light diffusing filter on it after I downloaded it to my computer. I like that otherworldly quality too. Although the actual winter scene did not look like that, the photo accurately captures the emotions the scene evoked within me. I do love b&w pictures, photos and films. There is a power in them that color seldom captures; that use of light and shadow, n’est pas? Thanks for stopping in and leaving a comment and a smile.

    Lovely photo, Yousei. Is this home in the snow today?

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Thanks. I took this photo a few years ago, but if we had a bit more snow it would look the same. I used a couple of filters to soften the light and edges. I liked how it turned out. It’s not what a winter scene truly, exactly looks like; however, it captures my feelings about the first heavy snows of winter. Growing up in Texas, I still enjoy the early snows, even after being in Michigan for over twenty years.

If you leave tracks, I'll find you.
