On A Warm Play Day Please:
Spring is late around here and I am getting tired of waiting. I have been wanting to have another picture taking session in some cemeteries around here and the weather is not cooperating.
My Victorian clothing is fine for in the house on a brisk spring day, but I look like a layered and over dressed turtle in the pictures when it is still cold outside. Some non descript lump of black stuff dumped in the middle of a cemetery.
Yes, we have had the occasional warm day but they have been used up by needed work to be done outside. I want to plan a play day and there have been too few warm days to go around.
I’m getting concerned that it will just skip spring and move onto summer weather and that is just as bad for taking pictures in. You really don’t want to see me dieing of heat stroke, in the sun, dressed in layers of black cloth. It is not pretty.
The best time for taking pictures around here in old cemeteries is the spring. You don’t have to watch out for the poison ivy like you do in the autumn and you can do it in relative comfort.
So, to mother nature: Lets get this spring thing going. If you’d like, we can do a tango to entertain you. We are getting a lot better at it.
T-A-N-G-O We want the cold weather to go.
