Following closely behind these bird tracks were cat prints. Did the cat stalk the bird? Or did it catch the scent hours after the bird had left? Or maybe the cat had been there first. The snow records their presence but leaves us no timeline except to reveal that the birds are returning from their southern vacation and that means that spring can't be that far behind.
The Lotus 52s is my 2011 project to capture one photo a week. I have a new lens and that makes it the right time to get to know my camera better. This is my effort to improve my images, to improve my processing, and to learn more about the world around me.
