A tough winter has worn this humble blogger down. As I type this post in mid-March, the snow has melted, but the frigid temps outdoors remind me that winter is not yet over.
The following photos convey visually some of my impressions of a tough season, but one that was not without its moments of beauty.
Below, a tentative Boxer trudges through several inches of snow.
A storefront Buddha in the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philadelphia takes the cold season in stride.
The photograph below, entitled “West Germantown,” was captured on my way home from work one afternoon in February. It is currently on display at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts’ Gallery 128 through April 6th.
Here I am in said gallery, proud as any mother could be. (My works of art truly do feel like my babies.)
This was another photo captured on my way home from work. I pulled over for this shot.

The lovely ladies featured below are Gina G. and Leanne M., two talented musicians who once belonged to Misstallica, an all-female band tribute to Metallica. I was fortunate to make their acquaintance yesterday and capture this shot.

Gina, there’s so much great photography work in the particular post that I don’t know where to begin! I think it’s absolutely stellar to see you having several showings of your photo work lately. Congrats again on the Academy show! Also, may I add that as you climb the ladder of success, you are not “allowed” to relocate from the Philadelphia area; no one else I know captures the vibrancy and urban beauty of our city as well as you do (esp. through the fresh focus you bring to your photography and compositions.) LOVE the Germantown and Manayunk pcs. above!
Patricia, thank you for your sweet comments. I have a big grin on my face reading them — how you do flatter. 🙂 Seriously, though, I couldn’t be happier here in Philly and I think Jeff feels the same way. Hope we can meet up with you and Brian for a celebratory toast at some point.
Sounds like a good plan!
I love the photo of Baby girl and the Sunset. Very peaceful, almost quiets the mind. Thank you Gina. I needed this today.
Really glad you found it soothing, Katy! I hope your St. Patty’s Day is a pleasant one. XOXO
