White 2 Gray

White. We got a bit more snow yesterday morning. I headed into Portland, picked up J- and his camera and spent a few hours shooting the city. I took him to a few of my favorite photographic stops. We talked about how many of them might be ideal places for him to film movies. It was Ash Wednesday, and when we got to Tommy's Park on the way to Bard Coffee, he caught a humorous scene with his camera. Two minister's from a local church were dispensing ashes next to a sign that noted "Ashes to Go". Well, at least I smiled. Gray.

  8. From the warmth of my southern spot, I love the snow and this gorgeous tree flocked by nature!

    I read about a church (NC?) doing "drive-by" ashes yesterday for those who might be too reluctant to come inside. Interesting concept.

  12. Oi, you mean like a drive-through for the imposition of ashes?! It would be hard to kneel while at the wheel, but maybe it's better than nothing. Any chance we could see J's photo?
