do you hear what I hear?

As you may have noticed, by about oh say NOVEMBER 1st, I had already failed NaBloPoMo. I tried though, I mean, even if it wasn't going to be 30 posts in 30 days, I wanted to come darn close. And up until the 18th I was doing "ok" *ahem*

That's enough said about that. I have missed so many things in my blogging absence. Seriously, why have a blog if you're not going to blog? It adds stress to my life when i DON'T. So I do. Or at least in my head i do...

Today I had a family photoshoot out in bloomfield... which brings me to the real part of this post. Yesterday came the abrupt end to our indian summer when the fierce lake effect snow from lake erie blew in across our region. I like snow... when I don't have to get anywhere near it. It is quite pretty though, and while I was driving along the back country roads on my way back from the shoot, I passed by some very beautiful horses chowin' some hay. I decided to turn around and go back figuring that on this narrow back road, as dangerous as it might be to turn around in snow and ice, there would surely be no cars coming the other direction. Turns out I was wrong... and escaped a near mishap in my quest to photograph a horse.

what I hear?

They were very nice horses. Enjoying standing in the snow about as much as I was. If it weren't for the fence between us, which i realized after touching it that it was probably electric and just wasn't on *at the moment* they would have licked my hand.

do you hear

I'm having a dilemma with these pictures though. Normally I don't vacillate so much when editing photos, but this time I am. So you can help me out. I put them side by side in both color and very lightly toned bw



What do you think?

I kinda think that he's asking me "do you hear what I hear?" I could be wrong... but i swear i heard him say that...

Amanda, The horses are beautiful! I like them both ways but I love the carmel color of the horse in color! Nice work!! Did you know that we had 2 ponys on the farm when we were growing up? Ask your father about it. He always thought he was Charleton Heston filming a scene fron Ben Hur!! Anyho.......I was going through all my old Christmas cards yesterday and came across a card from you in 2004. Do you remember that? There is an adorable pic of you on the front of the card. A Christmas letter was inside. My how 5 years has changed your life!!! Love ya, Aunt Wendy

I like the black and whites better. the colors are nice, but because its winter they're a little ... drab. but I feel that way about every picture I look at from outside
