    Pictures so cold the viewer wants to get a cup of hot cocoa and sit by a fire.

    Thanks for the theme suggestion, corsec67!

    I was going to complain about near record high temps here in Colorado, but then on looking through my archive I realized that for one of my “Models in Swimsuit” shoots in December we went out in the snow. For about 5 min.

    I need a judge’s ruling on this one. We’re going for anything cold, right? Not necessarily an outdoor winter scene. Just cold or frozen things?

    Anything where the viewer “wants to get a cup of hot cocoa and sit by a fire.”

    So, if soosh had a picture of a house that flooded and then froze from broken plumbing, for example, that would work just fine.

    Maybe the inside of the freezer, an ice rink, low temperature test chambers.

    I left it fairly open on purpose, otherwise the people from Florida would be in trouble.

    Hmm… that’s what I was afraid of. I have a clever shot of a frozen object, but it’s not the type to make you want to go warm up. I’ll just save it for another day.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    And I’m buried in two feet of snow and have nothing for this one yet. The only thing I can think of for the time being, I’m trying to convince myself is lame and that I can do better, is the three lumps of snow in my driveway previously known as “Corvette” “Chrysler” and “Jag”

    This is my inspiration for this theme:

    Ice mask, C.T. Madigan, between 1911-1914 / photograph by Frank Hurley

    A Vette and a Jag in the driveway under the snow? No garage? Or is that where you keep the Maserati and the Bentley?

    I wish. The vette was in the garage. Then the water pump in the chysler decided to fail. And the wonderful engineers that be at chrysler decided that under the timing cover woud be a lovely place to put the water pump. So I had to pull the engine, and the garage is not big enough for both the vette and the engine stand with engine on it. It’s okay, I pretty much sealed the vette and jag with tyvek because I knew this would end up happening.
