Two For Tuesday - The Day Old, Half-Price Edition

The ebb and flow of creativity has struck. And the result being yesterday's total write off. Not from a lack of desire, somedays there's just nothing in the tank (sorry about the cliche, but sometimes the best words are those that have been used to describe like situations time and time again).

Fast forward one day and everything has changed. Our fool who awoke one day ago to spring is trapped in the midst of a snow storm.; the flooded back alley has become a quagmire of slop and slush. And his head is literally bursting with ideas (which if he had any sense he'd write down as he's sure to lose more than a few of them as the chaos surrounding twists and turns his attention to something new).

This morning as I returned from depositing the children at school, I heard the lonesome cry of the first gull of the year competing with the howl of the wind. I couldn't see it, but it's darn near a white-out out there this morning. I'm thinking the other gulls where having one over on him, an early April Fool's joke perhaps, telling him that March in Winnipeg is the place to be - the weather being fowl and all.

Being Wednesday, it's time for sepia. Today I've got two images (two for Tuesday and all that):

First I've got a red River cart wheel photographed at Lower Fort Garry.



And secondly, the grotto at the trappist Monestary Ruins in St. Norbert, Manitoba.

My apologies for the disjointed rambling nature of today's post,

That wagon wheel is a winner. Very nicely captured. My entry is here: http://ewok1993.wordpress.com

Both of these are perfectly suited to the sepia enhancement!
I really love the wagon wheeel.

My post is on my photoblog: Carletta’s Captures.

You can ramble anytime, as long as you put out awesome shots like that. They are both fantastic.

Enjoyed your disjointed rambling and your sepia photos. The wagon wheel is very good in sepia as it tends to be that kind of era piece. The second one is very unusual, made eerie looking by the sepia. Very Good photos. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and photos.

I like both your sepia offerings and your ramblings this week. Now I'm off to google that monastery.

Your sepia photos are great.

I hope you are on very high ground, well above the possible flood lines of the Red River.

Hi Craig, Love your photos. I am very interested in learning photography, but at the moment have other priorities.

Just popped in as your blog title is similar to mine, and I thought i would say Hi.

Happy Easter to You, from Australia.
