The weather people built up the “storm” for days and when it finally came, it was little more than a pffft. But, it did make for some fun photo opportunities because for awhile after the snow ended the sun shone and the light was glorious. It didn’t last long, but I took advantage of it to snap some photos of the birds that hang out outside my window and entertain me daily. The beauty of having 1970′s windows is that I can hear the birds singing as well as enjoy them going through their ritual of moving from branch to branch in succession as they wait for their turn at the feeder.
