I Heart Faces–Winter Wonderland

_MG_0824 winter scene

Only a blanket of snow can transform a field of weeds into a Winter Wonderland…..

I always struggle with choices when it’s contest time. Close up? Posed shot? Girly and pretty, or gritty boy shot? But this one just clicked for me. This is our next door neighbor’s field. His wife passed away in 2003, and he died in 2009. His son comes over to mow the front yard and keep the place in shape, but this field, which used to be so lovingly plowed and harvested as a huge garden by Mr. Howard, has grown into a mess of weeds. Until we got 6 inches of snow last week (the most my boy has EVER seen at one time). In looking at this picture, all that keeps running through my mind are the words underneath the picture. I suppose that it’s the perfect visual for being “washed as white as snow”…

  10. I know exactly what you mean when you say it’s a good visual for being washed white as snow. Glad you all were able to get out and enjoy the snow. Was it hard for him to go back to the routine this week?
