Incoming photo dump!

It snowed a bunch. This is sort of awkward, given that I was hoping to buy groceries today; it's not safe to bike at the moment, and even Amazon Fresh gave up on my scheduled delivery. Whoops.

The next building over in the apartment complex is a good background to show the flakes falling.

A telephoto shot of the apartment complex across the street- this seemed to be a particularly good angle. Yes, this photo was still taken from my balcony; I like having a 5x optical zoom...

Tea, with chess


Tea, with chess

My morning (in this case, early afternoon) tea, on a backdrop of the we-never-put-away-the-chessboard from Rakeela and I playing a game last night. (She won. In my defense, it was 4:00 AM, and I was more than ready for bed- while she'd slept later and had an energy drink at the local game store during a D&D session.)

I've got another variation of this photo. This is one of very few photos I've taken that is a deliberate arrangement of things, rather than just a picture of something as I see it. The narrow depth of field is intentional. There's a variation of this from a very different angle on my Flickr photostream (check it out; I only LJ-posted less than half of the photos I took, and I believe they're worth seeing!), and I'm not sure which one is better.

End of the photo-dump for now, but it's not the end of the photos. Check out my Flickr photostream for a lot more.
