Just an F-Blog #37. Snow down on me.

I can't remember a snowfall like that in Ljubljana for years. I am rather tired after a really intense week at work and still fighting with a slight post-Egyptian-climate-change cold, but we simply had to go out tonight and enjoy the beauty a bit. Traffic in the country is totally crippled, but do I care, really? :) The whole set is also Flickrd.

Grainy, ISO 1600, b&w images. Seemed appropriate.


Traces.




Morning work.


I hope it stays like that for a while.

 
Passing by. One way or another.


More morning work.


Care for a little chat in the park?

Is there a body buried on that bench?

Given some people in my neighbourhood... If only. :)

A beautiful photo-essay in spectral, luminous transformation.

The final one of that bench is really quite eerie; it looks as if someone or something has been buried by the cold white mantle of powdering ice crystals.

Thanks, Shimmer. :) Well, I am sure it just snow.


I think.

Who could tell. LOL

Oh, it's worth missing it, cause it's really pretty.

Staying warm? Sitting at the computer in my knickers and a t-shirt and barefoot. No, I am not cold. :)

It looks really beautiful. But I can say that because it doesn't snow here.

Well, now and then... like in Winter it feels okay to have some snow. I like it.

And my mind can get ready for skiing vacation soon. :)

Wow, so much snow! :)

Love your photos of it. And yes, it's appropriate. :)

It's funny, as I was taking my walk this evening, I found myself dreaming of walking the streets of Ljubljana with you and Igor... but I had no idea that you had snow. :)

So I've found a winter recipe. :) We should walk around some more soon, yes.........

Actually... it isn't that cold. It's about freezing, so snow is kinda wet. I'd prefer a few degrees colder weather.

LOVE it! I want it, and I want it NOW! So warm and humid here that I am dreaming of snow and cold like that. It looks really beautiful and you have captured the winter feeling so well.

Hugs!

So some nice refreshment would be good. And we can order some vin chaud and it will be even nicer. :)

THANKS, Al! Hugs

Oooh pretty! I'm not a big snow fan (because it's so cold, lol) but this is pretty. The snow looks so clean and... delicious like snow cone ice that I want to eat it!
paterson_si
Jan. 9th, 2010 01:12 am (UTC)
Yes, it is fresh and clean tonight. And I LOVE snow! :) Can't wait to go on a skiing vacation in... *checks the calendar* ... 21 days. :)

Gorgeous! About 20cm?

The snow, not you....
paterson_si

LOL

It's not nice to make people on the edge of sneezing burst in laughter. :)

Well, it is 20.

Now you decide.

Pictures are gorgeous. I am almost sorry to not be able to be in two places at once. Snow in Paris began just after we left :( Still I can enjoy your pictures. Thanks.

Jan. 9th, 2010 07:32 am (UTC)
Oh, you will probably see some snow soon, given your ability to travel a lot. And, yes, snow is always so nice and beautiful. Well, at least when it's still fresh. :) I am happy you liked the set!

Snowy hugs!

I was hoping for naked snow angel pic ;-)

looks pretty, did you have a fire and hot cocoa waiting for you back inside?
paterson_si
Jan. 9th, 2010 07:33 am (UTC)
Well, no angels. Dressed not clothed. LOL Maybe next time.

It is still pretty and, oh yes, it was warm at home. I opted for hot coffee, not cocoa. :)

Chat in the park...imagine freezing your ass off on that! No amount of furry ass will save you from frostbite LOL

Nope, it wouldn't help. Unfortunately. But we could try, right? :)

NAKED SNOW ANGEL! NAKED SNOW ANGEL! NAKED SNOW ANGEL! ;)

NAKED snow angel? Good lord! :)

WOW!

That is incredible! I just can't imagine snow falling like that! Even when I lived in Japan, and saw snow for my first time ever, I don't remember seeing snow like that!

How friggin' amazing... But it really is amazing to read about it's effect on transportation, with flights and trains being cancelled, and cars / buses / trucks being stranded...

LOVELY photos, as always!

So you DO need to come over to Slovenia... to experience some snow and then some... heat. :)

And, yes, it's causing a lot of trouble in Europe. Slovenia is no exception. Traffic is terrible.
