The weather was inviting. Cold, but crisp. It was the overcast day with typical Oregon freezing fog. But first, Tippi needed walked. Begrudgingly, I placed my boots on my feet. I bundled my shivering frame with my large winter coat. I found my gloves and pulled them onto my hands. Ready for the cold, I hooked the leash to her harness.
ZING…She was off and running! After an embarrassing start we began our trek down the road from our house. While Tippi had her nose stuck to the ground, I had my eyes stuck to the world around me.
White. But not from snow. Frost. The world had been painted. And here I was walking a dog. No camera in hand. (I don’t trust the dog and the camera in the same space). We walked past the lot being turned into a new subdivision (more traffic…drat!). We walked past the acreage lot with a cute yellow farm house. I told myself to not wish for this property…I’m thankful for my 10,000 sq ft lot. Tippi was blissfully unaware of the plot developing in my mind. After letting her do her “business” I decided her little jaunt was over! A quick stroll home, Tippi was handed to my daughter and I left. Camera in my hand.
Scenes of a December Walk
My world can still be photographed…I just need to step outside my front door!
