Color

Just as cabin fever was about to set in and we were all about to lose our minds, mother nature decided to throw us a bone and the weather turned absolutely beautiful (what up, El Nino?)

We've been sitting comfortably in the mid 40's to 50's, with sun. In January. This time last year? Yeah, I don't want to talk about it. It was a rough winter.

With all the sun, we've been hitting up the park as much as possible...not our usual haunt, but another park about a mile and a half from our house - so mommy gets a three mile run in, and the kiddo gets to run amok and let go of some of that endless energy.

Win-win.

And even in the bleakness of winter, there is color...

natural color...



artistic color...



playful color.



The promise of spring is in the air, and many, many more afternoons at the park. I can hardly wait!

Beautiful shots. I particularly like the mossy rock.

Are you pushing a stroller for that nice little job to the park? Because that makes you my hero. Glad you are getting a bit warmer temps and sun. I think the sun is here to stay for us, at least for today. Great colors all around.

I love that moss pic, my favorite is the one with your little boy at the playground.

My favorite pictures are the playful color - great job! I'm glad you were given a break so you could get outside.

These are great. I like the one focused on the lines of the playground equipment and the one of your son in the tube best. I am so enjoying You Capture. What a fun way to learn about photography (even with a point and shoot).

I'm walking at our park today because of the wonderful weather (in the 70's today!) Vitamin D is so great!!

Great shots! I love the little guys hair coming out of the slide! :-) I like the playground equipment too. They make them so colorful don't they?

My favorite is the last shot of your little guy at the park. Great colors!

I love the green of the moss! I envy your weather and the chance to play at the park. We probably have a couple of months before we can venture out there!

Sarah Jones said...

Oooh, Love the totem pole looking ones! Glad you could take a stroll full of color!

You're site is a riot and I was laughing over your profile, too!!!

Beautiful captures.

Great captures, I love the moss too! And the last one with your son. He looks like he was having a fantastic time.
Can't wait till it warms up (without a downpour) so we can get out to the park as well.
