The Gallery: White

My entry for this week’s Gallery at the lovely Tara Cain’s Sticky Fingers blog.

Up until now I’ve used old photos, this week I’ve taken one especially for The Gallery to its specific theme. And written about it. So here it is:

Frozen Footprints in the Snow

Are they mine? Are they hers? Are they “ours”? Where do they go? What story do they tell?  Are they going the same way, or moving apart? Is there more, more to the story here that  I don’t see? So much for me to see: left behind, frozen in time – but only for a moment. And I’m still in the dark.

One thing is clear from the frozen footprints in the snow:  that bloody cat has been after my feeding birds again…

The light was good this morning , but the snow had thawed so much that  I thought I’d left it too late to get a decent picture. I was pleasantly surprised however by the photos I took – so I couldn’t resist posting some more here.  Aww I’m just too much of a rock’n”roll rebel! *ahem* Anyway, see what you think:
