These cute kids were playing outside the family store in Venice. The little boy hiding behind the scarf stand was trying in vain to catch a pigeon (hopefully he was going to let it go) while his little sister tried to keep the family dog from eating the crumbs. He didn’t quite have set up right but his grandfather (I assume) came out to show him how to do it. It was quite enjoyable watching them and it was nice to see kids not looking at a screen. They certainly had a lot of patience.

This is not the best photo but I really wanted to share it. This was taken at Incheon Airport, South Korea with my new Sigma lens as a reenactment of The Royal Family Walk paraded through. This beautiful girl saw me from a distance with my camera (amongst an array of paparazzi) and looked straight at me so that I could take this shot. I thought that was really nice of her to do that. I’m not sure what the blue and white spots in the photo are but it looks kinda cool
A woman whose smile is open
and whose expression is glad
has a kind of beauty
no matter what she wears.
These were taken in Incheon, South Korea and it was the first time I have seen real snow, EVER. I’ve seen freezer snow and fake snow but this was real and it was beautiful. It was only -6 deg Celsius and I was quite surprised at how bearable it was outside with the right clothes. Unfortunately it wasn’t falling while we were there but like a child, I really enjoyed my first experience.
“Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
