We had an ice storm overnight that turned my less-than-picturesque backyard of chain link and a dead tree into a stark beauty, an ethereal landscape. Thanks for the brief aesthetic upgrade, however fleeting, Oklahoma prairie weather! I like messing with the app vsco cam, which I used for most of these shots and a photo session at the window for Eli. It makes for pretty skin tones.
Here is my collection of yard-sicles from today, and a few shots of my buddy boy bein’ cozy at the window.
Give it a lick, I double dog dare ya
With just a little coating of ice, your chain link, too, can go from bla to “oo la la!”
Nosy, like mama. Cozy, like a Sox cap on a icy day. Such is Eli. Shot on an iPhone 4S with regular camera, then edited VSCO cam app.
VSCO Cam for ios makes baby’s cheeks even more glowy and pinchable.
pretty chain link, pretty tin shed
Our dead tree is especially pretty and menacing this time of the year. Note to self: threaten slumlord with lawsuit.
Branches are snapping, threatening lives. Just another day in the neighborhood…
