12 of 12

So I'm doing my eleventh 12 of 12. 12 pictures taken on the 12th of the month. Since I only post once per day, you get my images the following day. All pictures taken with my iPhone. Click images to enlarge, if you choose.

Created by Chad Darnell (thanks Chad!) and picked up from, what I can tell, a number of random bloggers who then link back to him and vice versa. While he said he would stop it at the end of 2010, it still looks up and running to me, so I'm running with it.

I can't say this is my best effort. A work-at-home-snow-day leaves little to be imaginative about. At least half the pictures were taken within a 40 minute time frame, so I'm sorry about that. I tried to make them arty, but I don't think it worked so well.

06:15. I shoveled a path so I could get the paper and take out the garbage. Taken from inside the garage, the big streak is not a comet, just a passing by snow flake.

06:30. Some kind of winter-time decorations in the vestibule. I guess the pseudo-adult way to call it would be twig and berries.

09:30. My clementines for the week, minus 2.5 days worth. What? I've been eating five a day.

09:45. Front yard pine - and all the headlights from the on-coming cars going down the hill.

10:30. My home office. Not really, but the office is freezing, so I just set-up shop in the sun room. The Mac is my personal laptop and I just had it up for iTunes. The Dell is my work laptop.

16:00. The driveway (or part of it) with 6-7" of snow. Time to clear it.

16:10. Running a snow-blower and taking a picture is harder than one might think.

16:25. The driveway (or part of it), no longer with 6-7" of snow.

16:30. Grasses in the snow - side of the drive.

16:32. The oak tree after being pummeled by thrown snow from the snow blower.

16:34. A self-portrait in the snow. I took off my hat so you could all see my ginormous-sized melon head. Actually, I took some pics avec hat, but it looked even worse.

16:35. If you can't see it say 'STOP', do you have to?

18:30. Your Baker's Dozen. Sophie.

She's a cat who likes heat and will sit next to this radiator when it's on. It doesn't hurt that it's next to Denton's shoes. She's a weird cat. She likes to make sweet sweet love to our shoes. She just sticks her nose in them and rolls around with them when they are off. Strange little girl.

The clementine shot is rich with color. Amazing what you can do with a phone cam. Your portrait is excellent; what are you squawking about? Most of our cats loved shoes. We had one who would fall asleep with her face inside a sneaker. Go figure.

I like these 12 of 12 posts, showing us the quiet, everyday things of life. Very intimate.

I love all your snow pics... very pretty.... and they remind me of home. It's great that Chad is still doing the 12 of 12. It's a lot of fun looking at pics taken by ordinary people from all over the world.

From what I've seen, your house looks very pretty. Consider a post of your favorite rooms?

my meredith does that also...she sits next to the heating grate and makes love to my shoes. and my meredith looks just like your sophie; they could be twins!

and you do NOT have a melon head; you are a nice looking gentleman!

Buddy Bear said...

Instead of "ordinary" in my above comment, how about substituting the word "average"... "non-professional"....not quite.....How about "incredibly handsome, charismatic, non-professional photographer / blogger?" :>)

I put up a baker's dozen the eleventh. And now I've got that dang song in my head. Oh my darlin', oh my darlin', oh my darlin' Clementine, ......

Five clementines a day? Whoa. :)

Nice to see another "bilingual" computer user out there. :)

Happy New Year!
