Walk and Click Wednesday #30: Evening Snow and Very Short Walks

It's Walk and Click Wednesday! Aren't you glad? Were you able to get out and walk, even for a little bit. I must admit my walks were very short this week! Sometimes just out my front door, sometimes a bit farther.

Last Friday evening we got snow. I was up late doing something, can't remember what now, but I noticed an intriguing phenomenon that I've never seen anywhere else, but have notice a few times here in Colorado ... that in the middle of the night it looks almost light as day outside. These images were taken at 11pm!! It was really beautiful. I love the way the light casts a pink glow upon the snow.

Saturday I stopped by Redbox. I just had to have a movie, but I struggled with being practical or daring ... was it worth risking getting stuck in the snow just to get a movie! Well, fortunately, by afternoon, the snow let up and the roads began to melt off. It was a bit slick on some of the slight hills around here, but nothing that concerned me.

I didn't venture into McDonald's, but as I made an effort to capture seagulls hovering above the McDonald's sign and missing them, I just liked the pop of color in the grey sky. ;->

I rented Robot & Frank which I really enjoyed. It was an interesting treatise on aging in the future, what constitutes friendship, and what might happen to libraries.

And Sunday, Kobi got a much-needed grooming. This usually takes me a couple of hours with bathing, cutting, and brushing! But oh, it's really worth it. He looks so pretty and smells delightful!! Why is I seem to love him more when he's soft and clean? He's just more cuddly.

I look forward to seeing where all of you have been this week.

Just a friendly reminder ... please link directly to your post, not your main url.


I look forward to seeing you here for Walk and Click Wednesday. Can't wait to see what you saw on your strolls.

Please join me in the adventure. The only "requirement" other than those below is that you go out walking and take some pictures. Please keep in mind that you don't have to walk, take pictures, process them, and post all on Wednesday ... take the weekend before to explore and a few days to process your photos ... then link up.

Walk and Click Wednesday (WCW) Guidelines:

Are you new to Walk and Click Wednesdays? The party will open on Wednesday and close on Saturday at midnight.

Here are just a few guidelines to keep everyone on target.
  • Please link directly to your WCW blog post or the specific flickr image, not to your main blog url or flickr stream url. Please do not link to an online shop.
  • Please link back to laf Custom Designs. I'd love it if you'd share my WCW button on your blog (it's over there on the sidebar--see it?--just under the Friends Who Love It Here icons). It will also serve as a reminder to you since I know you all have a lot going on in your lives.
  • Please visit the other WCW participants and share the love. Gotta get this party goin' on.
Have a great weekend and find some time to walk and click. ;->


  1. Hi. Your dog is very cute. Snowy outside photos are very beautiful too.
    Wishing you a wonderful day.

  2. There is just something about the soft coat of a clean dog. What always gets me about the boys is how soft their ears are. I just want to keep running my hands over them.

  3. I did not think "my" little fella could be any more handsome, but surely he is! I used to groom my little Bert too, and I enjoyed every minute of it. He seemed to also!

    I love those late night shots, Lissa! I've noticed that here sometimes too, but only when it snows.

    Wishing you a wonderful day!

  4. I love seeing what you do with our weather here...as usual I end up saying, "I wish I'd done that!"

    I am in L.A. for a couple days as I blogged about last week. Know that you inspired me to bring my camera anyway...I will post a W&C hopefully tomorrow :)


  5. loved your night time snow shots. so very mysterious.

  6. Love you Midnight Maddness shots - and love, love, love you nappin' Kobi, precious.

  7. Love the lantern light in the snow (bottom right) -it looks like an Edward Hopper painting! Seems this winter is a severe one everywhere -but Spring IS coming!

  8. What were you up at 11:00 pm at night? Good grief...I am in bed by 10pm☺☺ All kidding aside the photos were really cool!
