St Patrick's Day

I hope everyone is wearing their green. Saturday I attended the St Patrick's Day parade downtown alone. It was an interesting experience because there was no one to watch and follow. All the shots I took were my ideas and I had to find space in the crowd to stand. About half way through the parade there was a float of little cheerleaders. These girls were about ten years old in general. There was one girl that was just staring off into space and had no interest in the parade. Unfortunately I have no picture of that because it would be a classic before and after. As soon as I pointed my camera in her direction her expression changed to what you see here. I guess her mom must take lot of pictures of her. The other unfortunate thing is that I have no idea how to get a hold of her parents to send them a copy of the picture.

We have also had some beautiful snow here the last couple days. This is my attempt at capturing a winter wonderland. I tried to work with the rule of thirds with sky and white trees in the top, tree in the middle and bottom of tree in the bottom.
