Snow Day

This was on a Saturday and my helpmeet and I were out and about for a visit to the Art Gallery of Alberta and then to teach me how to drive in winter (if you are ever driving in Edmonton and you see a black Sonata with a nervous looking gal white-knuckling the wheel, get as far away as you can, because I’m a menace).

Being out on a Saturday meant I could do some photos and actually have natural lighting (which is pretty rare for me, given that it’s already dark by the time I leave for work and by the time I’m done work and ready to do some photo shooting during the week).

In other news, I've been feeling a bit under the weather for the past few days and am desperately trying to not get sick - especially since I'm heading to Washington DC in a few weeks to attend the American Historical Association's annual conference and any time I'm on the cusp of getting sick and I board a plane, it usually spells disaster.

Winter driving sucks. I should know since I lived in Alaska for a while. But hopefully your car and everyone else's is winterized so it should be all good. Just drive slow and don't make any deliberate movements!!

I have been experiencing winter driving for 15 years now, and I still white knuckle it! It sucks.

It's good to learn how to drive in the snow, but best to not have to!

Hope you can avoid that cold, and enjoy your conference!

Getting photos with natural light in the winter is a Herculean task - you did a great job with these. I love the colour combination of your blouse and jacket!
