You know you need winter to end when…

You pine for the pool every time you drive by it – at least 4 times a day.

The amount of static in your hair/clothes/cat actually might electrocute you.

There is a constant coat of sand and salt on your lovely hardwood.

You gain back 8 pounds and you’re desperate to start running again. But damn it’s sooo cold!

All of your photos start to look alike – and not on purpose. There is nothing else to shoot.

    As always, they’re gorgeous photos! You have such talent with the camera, even if you’re sick to high heaven of the subject matter. Me? I’m thinking of a doing a time-lapse piece at the grocery store in the milk & bread aisles every time a storm is forecast. 😉
