Starting the Week with Dad's Photos

Sometimes photos are like a stew. You take them, then they need to sit awhile for everything to mesh and to see the beauty in each one. So, I'm starting the week with Dad's photos. They've sat awhile, and they have become even more beautiful than when I first received them. I love that Dad and I now have photography in common. For Christmas I sent Dad a digital frame with a card full of my photos. I think I'm going to suggest to him that he grab a card and send me a full one... then I'll send him another, etc. Snail mail with digital images... pretty cool :-)
I went out and took pictures twice yesterday. It was 32 degrees in the morning when I went out, and though I bundled up, I didn't last long. I did get some photos of frost on spider webs, and lots of macros though. My second trip out, I somehow ended up at an abandoned barn, an abandoned shack, a burned down house in the woods, and the wildlife refuge. Unfortunately the trails at the wildlife refuge were closed due to high water, but I did get some good photos there.
Today after work will be all about sorting photos, and deleting bad ones. I need to bring some sort of order to my thousands of digital images. So yeah... back to work today. I hope you guys have a great Monday.

I agree with lett photos stew...I can look at one an the "okay-bla" and come back to and see something else that just pops.
Your dad's photos are beautiful!
