This is actually from march of this year, but it sums up my feeling of winter. It's pretty but kind of nasty at the same time. I love how it looks, and i don't really mind the cold if i don't have to go out in it too much, but people drive like idiots during it and i always seem to forget to stock up before the storms as i don't really like risking my life and car on slick roads. Don't even get me started how i got a garbage bag stuck to the front of my car today and didn't realize people were flagging me down for that, not the burned out headlight. D'oh.

This is an older picture too, taken with an antique 120 film camera. Seems there is some light leak going on, but i like it, gives it an atmosphere. I rarely play with film, just gets too expensive and leaning new things add to that cost. Still, fun to use once and an while.

This is a relative of the spider eating the fly i do believe. The macro lens i used is a favorite of mine, but i have to use the ring flash and get really close to them. I love how much detail i can end up seeing with it and i've gotten a new appreciation of spiders from doing them. There was a group on Flickr of close up insects, but i lost the link. I'll try and find it again and post it, although most of them do put me to shame.
I found the flickr group, Insect Close-ups.
