CBWC – Cold and Chilly


There’s a trend to most of my photos–usually, they have to do with the beach or someplace warm. This week, for Cee’s Black and White photo challenge (CBWC)–photos that demonstrate cold, chilly, or chili, I had to dig deep for photos, because, well, let’s face it–I hate the cold! The right photo can make it pretty, but I won’t be out in it long. The first photo was of a fairly fresh snowfall in Flagstaff, Arizona, and I took it from my heated car seat (with window very briefly rolled down to capture it).

I absolutely love polar bears. Someday, I will try to see them in person. Until then, I am happy taking photos of these girls playing in their man-made snow in sunny San Diego. They’re definitely happier with the snow than I am!

To prove my point about not tolerating the cold, here’s a selfie I took with hubby on our twenty-eighth anniversary. The beach is always “cold” on our anniversary (December 28th), and you can see how we are bundled up. Those of you that live where there’s four seasons are probably laughing right now.

This isn’t in black and white, but I couldn’t resist posting this video clip of the polar bears absolutely loving their cold snow:

  1. While we were snowed in we went to Sunset Crater…it was a fun trip. Went to the Grand Canyon and it started snowing there. What little did we know if we had kept driving east past Sunset Crater we would have been out of the snow in an hour.
