This was the first month I can remember where I did more drawing than photography. It was just as well. We don’t usually go out much this time of year and this year, after two years of lockdowns, we’ve been even more unmotivated than usual.
Garry got to know a bluebird — I didn’t know they were around all winter, but obviously, they are.
I am doing more drawing and less photography and that will probably continue into the spring months when the snow finally melts and we can enjoy the out-of-doors again. Right now, it’s very cold and the snow of a couple of days ago has turned to ice. It looks like snow, but it’s hard as a rock. At least the driveway melted!
In between snows, we had unusually warm — 70 degree (F) — that set records. It was followed by below freezing weather and sleet and then back to sunshine again. At least we had a real winter with snow more or less normally.
I’m usually chattier, but it has been a very quiet month interrupted with a major war in Europe that has me unsettled (to say the least).
About The Changing Seasons
The Changing Seasons is a monthly project where bloggers around the world share their thoughts and feelings about the month just gone. We all approach this slightly differently — though generally with an emphasis on the photos we’ve taken during the month. Given the changing weather patterns, this is probably one of the more important challenges, giving us an opportunity to actually see what is happening — and where.
For many of us, looking back over these photos provides the structure and narrative of our post, so each month is different. Some focus on documenting the changes in a particular project — such as a garden, an art or craft project, or a photographic diary of a familiar landscape.
But in the end, it is your changing season, and you should approach it however works for you.
There are no fixed rules around post length or photo number — just a request that you respect your readers’ time and engagement.
