Winter White

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: White
BeckyB’s July Squares: Treesquare

In my part of the world it is summer. A hotter than normal summer from what the climate experts report.

I’ve never been one to look forward to the hot and humid, but it does seem worse than in years past…to me anyway. Growing up, my family never had air conditioning until we moved when I was 11. Until then, I spent “boiling” days (as I called them) outside in a kiddie pool or under the sprinkler or sitting next to a humming floor fan while watching cartoons or playing Monopoly with my sister. It was a round metal fan that you could sit on, cooling off your legs too. Hopefully without sticking your fingers inside. Now known as a “vintage floor fan,” it was back before finger-saving safety features became all the rage.

But I digress…this treesquare is obviously a winter photograph – post major snowstorm. I took this photo many years ago, as I liked the look of wet snow clinging to bare branches. It could be a challenge to capture the moment before winter sunshine made it disappear.

Before we know it…winter will creep back and this will be the scene outside many of our windows. No more hot and humid…which will be fine with me!

  1. That’s a beautiful photo! I too remember those finger-eating fans and the loud noise they make but they sure did the job. Good old Monopoly. As kids in the early 1970s, the neighborhood kids including me got together for a tournament. Fun! Bring back those wonderful, youthful days…

    and we’re going to need a bit of this cold this weekend as it is going to be a hot one for us – although no where near as hot as you are experiencing
