Awesome! Looks like you happened across a little family and is both trying to keep up and baffled at the white stuff :)

Stephen, What a wonderful shot. Do you ever allow people to paint from your originals? This one would make a great painting, in my estimation.

Love this!

c hummel,
well recently i have had to develop a strict protocol for the would-be artist!
uh, it's really complicated. see it's just that ... well, i am a simpleton and i prefer to think about these things like a simpleton.
so, here's the protocol for those artsy fartsy types:
1. thanks for thinking my stuff is worthy of this compliment.
2. if ya do anything with your art ... congratulations that you are able to do that. what a skill!
3. send me a photo copy ... so i can at least see what you did.
4. say nice things about me. tell people i am good looking too.
5. get a nikonsniper tattoo (optional).

if you can handle this protocol (strict rules) ... well then i am good with it. i am always fascinated at which photos people find worthy of this compliment. some of my very favorites ... don't even get responses. that should tell you a bit about my personal taste.

i guess i sorta take this approach to the protocol because i didn't go to ask the farmer for permission to photograph his cows. a sniper wouldn't announce his presence would he. so i only really hope you enjoy the photos ... and if you are capable of doing art inspired by them ... well, that was God's gift to you, not me.

all the best.

Very nice. The snow is coming. To you, it has arrived already. It's like in the film, Spirit!

Thanks (I think...) for your rules. I promise to strictly adhere to them, except, perhaps the tat. If and when I attempt the painting, I'll be sure you receive WIPS and the final product.

By the way, you are a really great photographer. I enjoy seeing the world through your lens. Keep posting, we never get tired.
