I don't think I've ever been more ready for winter to be over. Up until three or four years ago, I always loved winter, wished it would be longer and snowier and colder, but now, not so much. I still love big snowstorms and I will always love eating freshly fallen snow (but not "pee snow" of "dirt snow" as my niece Maggie says), and of course I love shooting images like these with my Lubitel on snowy days, but for the most part, I crave sunshine and clean air and bare feet. I said hello to the kayaks yesterday as I pulled my car in the garage. I miss them terribly.
