Darn Cold Out There Today

It was so cold today that after taking this picture of a chickadee bowing his head, I came back in to the relative warmth of our drafty house and thawed out my frozen fingers.

Giorgio Morandi

I'm taking another class with my old photography teacher - Owen Biddle.  We are studying various painters and trying to recreate their paintings into photographs.  This is a long stretch, but my first attempt at a still life by Giorgio Morandi.

New Years at the Konos (Click Photo for Better View)

We celebrated the New Year today as we have every New Year's Day since I met Ken 19 years ago. Ken makes a wonderful Japanese soup called Zoni - broth with mochi (rice cake), mushrooms and green onion.  This year we celebrated with our good friends Hans and Margaret and daughter Michelle Van Naerssen and Ken's Chinese language teacher - Shumei Hsu and her daughters Weiwei and Tsumi and husband Zhi.  Good time had by all.
