I know, I know, I can’t complain about the cold (like in the prairies), or the storms (like in Europe), or even the bugs (like in summertime), but this gray, overcast, rainy weather is slowly turning the snow to slush, and quickly turning my brain to mush. I am not embracing the winter here in Ontario as much as I did in Alberta – there’s something about crisp, cold air, and dry fluffy snow, all covered in bright blue skies, that is invigorating. This weather is definitely not inspiring me to take pictures, no sirree. So I’m digging through my images to find one suiting to the day. A few hours romping through a museum, hiding from the weather sounds like a good way to spend a day, don’tcha think?
