Loki in the Snow

By a trick of the eye and software, you can’t clearly see Loki’s leash in this rendition of the photograph. Never mind that sleight-of-hand: what’s astonishing is that instead of standing on the porch expressing his utter disdain and WTF?itude, Loki is seen actually picking his way through an admittedly much-attenuated snowfield.

I haven’t thrown myself down a mountain since I was teenager, but the chance to do it in weather like this would tempt…

Have Mercy

Submitted without comment, because ~ really ~ what is there to say at this point? I promise I will try to get somewhere and take pictures of something different and more interesting tomorrow.

…giving new meaning to the term “snowy mane.”


I got out into the wide world, in my car even, twice in two days. I feel almost like a citizen of the universe again! Just in time for more snow tomorrow.
