JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 03.20.21
We made it through another winter here in New Jersey.
I’m happy we made it to Spring, but I hate March.
Yes, if we could go from February to mid-April, I’d be happy.
The earth is still cold here in March. It holds the coldness, and on those sunny days when it looks great to be outside, that cold nips you.
The earth is muddy and wet. And cold.
Despite a few days to 55 degree days, there’s still small piles of snow that can be found hiding the corner of a parking lot. It’s back with auto soot, but it’s still there.
Those piles of packed snow, still holding onto their cold, are like beast that won’t die.
The trees are still still brown and warped from the wind
There’s not much green out there right now, everything is still just brown. And brown.
Oh, right, it’s windy too. And nippy.
The only good thing about March…you may start to hear the spring peepers at night, like I did this week.
And I saw a robin red breast, too.
But I still hate March.

“The use of the camera has always been for me a tool of investigation, a reason to travel, to not mind my own business, and often to get into trouble.” ~ Danny Lyon (March 16, 1942)
