As you can see today, however, there's not much life to document. The cut-down perennials in my plot resemble porcupines stuck in the snow.
The John Carroll memorial, however, seems to be getting lots more foot traffic, but with temperatures in the thirties, I doubt that there will be much picnicking or contemplation here today.
I am still getting used to the new camera's settings, and I have found that it was easier to keep the heavier old camera steady when shooting. But in 2009, I'll should have less of an excuse for taking photos such as this one.
