Reds, yellows, blues, purples, and, yes, even greens are out there in these early days of winter. You have to look closely, however, or you may miss all of that color hiding among the white and gray.

Black and White and Brown and Gray

My “real” camera hibernated for most of the last two weeks, so I took many photos on the fly with my dying iPhone. I can’t say I’ve liked many of them.

However, a three-day weekend is dawning, and I plan to a) reintroduce my camera to the great outdoors and take some solid photos in temperate (for Minnesota) weather, and b) purchase a new phone so I can have a decent camera with me on days when I don’t feel like lugging the big one all over civilization.

Today I had a moment to take a short walk with my favorite camera during daylight. Although these pics lack color, I thought a few turned out swell.

Back Where I Started

Today I begin year four of taking at least one photo every day. In 2012, I took my first picture in the series, a dried flower in my parents’ flower box. As I ponder whether I want to continue with this blog and the pressure of a photo every day, I leave you with a photo reminiscent of the first one I took three years ago.

In my opinion, the first photo (taken with my iPhone) is better than today’s (taken with my “real” camera).
