High Key Snow

Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 10 March 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This seems to me to have some of the qualities of an ink drawing.

MAX IN THE SPA - while Ellie and I were in the outdoor spa last night, Max was getting properly muddy in the flower beds. The next thing we knew, here was this white (and black) furball flying over the 3 ft. side of the spa. It was hilarious. (He loved it by the way.)
