If you have seen as many movies as I have — and I haven’t seen very many — you have often seen the American Humane Society’s disclaimer that, “No animals were harmed” in the making of this film.
Likewise, no calories were burned in the shooting of this picture. If you have read many of my articles, you will know that I rarely use the passive voice, but I had to do that here for symmetry with the quotation.
Because of my operation a couple of weeks ago and all the blood that I have lost, I am still feeling rather weak. So I am making sure to get a lot of sleep and got up late this morning.
But when I looked out of my living room window, I saw a winter scene that I just had to photograph. I thought about getting dressed quickly and dashing outside. Then, when I checked the weather report, I had second thoughts.
The temperature was then 9 degrees F below zero. It’s since warmed up, but this afternoon it’s still below zero. I do plan on going out for lunch — I am getting stir crazy by not being able to hike — but since we have absolutely no wind, it doesn’t feel that cold.
This is one of the easiest photos I’ve ever taken. This was the view this morning from my easy chair.
