In light of the ice storm and all the snow we received this week, I remembered some photos I took during another ice storm about 15 years ago. Back then, I took my camera out at just about any opportunity to practice. I remember wandering around the yard at my parents’ house with my film SLR wrapped in a plastic bag to protect it from the rain. I was getting pelted with icy raindrops, but I didn’t mind in the slightest because I was having so much fun finding interesting ice patterns. I wouldn’t say I’m a lazier photographer now, but when the ice storm hit this week I only briefly considered grabbing my camera and instead traded the photo op for the warmth and coziness of staying indoors under a blanket. I enjoyed seeing other people’s photos though!
