Winter is beginning to recede!

Last weekend was bright and sunny, not particularly mild but not particularly freezing either. So I took my camera with me on our usual weekend trips to the Farmer's Market, Planet Bean Café, and the library.

I'm a sucker for a clear reflection, and I love all the heads poking out from places you don't expect to see people's heads.

On the way to the library, I noticed this guy and his crazy beard from half a block away. The huz was all grim resignation, you want to take his picture, don't you, and I was all, YEAH! So he proceeded to the library with Swee'pea and I shot these kids playing hackey sack before meeting back up at the library.

The guy with the dreads kept tapping his fingers on the drum every time the sack came near him, almost like a nervous tic, and randomly blowing into his harmonica.

I LOVE the middle shot. Looks like a modern-day prophet.

Those are terrific photos. The quality of light/dark and contrast is great.

That first one is amazing. All are but the three headed coffee machine is incredible.

I love the last shot best of all; it makes me feel as if I'm standing there watching them.

Nice work.
