Reader Photo Challenge: Winter wonderlands

Winter is the theme for the latest Readers Photo Challenge assignment. Most people don’t consider winter as the time that we’re likely to go out and look for pictures. Inclement weather often keeps people inside away from many photo opportunities. But those opportunities can abound for those willing to brave the cold and wet conditions. [...]

In a fog

When walking to school as a kid, around 8 or 9 years old, on chilly winter mornings I would see the condensation from my billowing out of my mouth and the mouths of others. On one foggy morning, my kid logic put 2 and 2 together: fog came from people. A day with a light [...]

Readers Photo Challenge assignment: The heat is on

This month’s Readers Photo Challenge assignment is “Heat.” It shares some similarities with last month’s challenge of “summertime” by being issued at the hottest season of the year.
