“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?” – J. B. Priestley
After a few years of having warmer winters, finally Charlotte saw some snow last weekend. To be honest, it was more ice than snow. It snowed for a little bit over night, but during the day it was primarily ice. It was still a welcomed change from the last few years. Yesterday, my daughter and I decided to take a walk in and enjoy this rare event for the south. We walked over to where a fitness center used to be. Like everything else in Charlotte, it is going to become either town homes or apartments.
I was able to try out my new lens yesterday too. My wife was at Goodwill of all places and found a Nikon 18-55mm lens. She called me to ask if it worked on my mine, and the mount type was the same as my camera. She bought it for me, and it only cost $20. Typically, this lens costs at least $200 used. I was excited to get an opportunity to try it out, and it didn’t disappoint. I have been wanting a lens that does better with landscapes for a while, and now I have it!
