First Steps

After 8 days, I finally made it out for my first woodsy photo walk of the new year on Friday at Meridian Park.

The temp was about 18˚, and shit was frosty and crunchy. I started out in snowshoes, but I switched back to hikers after about a half-mile. The snow was packed down on some trails, and others were covered in deep iced snow that crunched so loud I was spooking wildlife two counties over! Not the best when you are trying to actually see and photograph wildlife.

I got a few bird shots and a lot of frosty nature nubbins. I’ve had better days out with the camera, but I’ve also had a LOT worse.

Saturday was spent watching FA Crap footy before going to wish the man half of our favorite mid-Michigan power couple a happy birthday around a late afternoon bonfire at Brookensesses Manor. COVID RESPONSIBILITY NOTE: This was an outdoor event, and due to recent Brookensesses events—mostly their promotion to mid-Michigan power couple stature on this blog—the couple and their family cannot currently contract, or be infected with, The Covid. #science #fuckthecovid

This was on the second time we’ve seen them—or any other friends—in a legit social situation since March 2020, and it was nice to catch up, give some birthday wishes, and even get a hug.

It was a beautiful day without a cloud in the sky. The temps were cool, but around the bonfire, it felt like an autumn evening.

Sunday was just Sunday. No one gives a shit about Sunday anyway because it gives one that “the condom broke” feeling all day long knowing that Monday is just around the corner. So, I will stop blathering and just post some pics from Friday.
