The Aftermath: Slush, ice, and salt

Today's post is number 601. How I missed that yesterday's was 600 is beyond me, but there you have it!

Yellow snow...

It snowed here yesterday. In the city, we got six inches of lovely powder. Today, in a bit of snarky humor, I bring you the ugly aftermath: slush, salt, dirt, and a dog or two. Come back tomorrow and I'll give you the pretty snow pictures.


Portrait of D.C. Confidential
hotographer: Bob Crowe, Saint Louis Daily Photo

In other news, yesterday evening I had the privilege of meeting Bob Crowe of Saint Louis Daily Photo and his friend and fellow photographer, Thom. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to meet Bob for a photo walk in my fair city, but I am pleased to feature Bob's portrait of me, taken later that evening over dinner at Jaleo. Thanks, Bob! It's a nice picture.

That snow does NOT make me want to play in it! Nice photo of you though. :-)

Virginia said...

NO NO NO, not a NICE picture, a really FINE portrait of you ,our friend, by the maestro himself! I wish I could have joined you two. Can't wait to hear all about it. We'll just have to plan another meeting and have us some fun.

Maya said...

OH, and congrats on that number of posts!

Be-you-tee-ful picture!

601 posts deserves a big WOW.
A really lovely picture of you. The yucky gray & yellow stuff - makes for an unusual post for sure.

Cele said...

Very nice picture, thanks Bob.

D.C. Confidential said...

Maya: Just think of it as my snarky snow pictures! ;-)

VJ: Thank you. Or rather, thank Bob. I know he took several more pictures than just the one here. I'm hoping he'll send me a few more.

Maya Redux: Thank you!

Arlene: Thanks!

Tash: The yucky snow is definitely not some of the finer content to be found on my blog. But a bit funny nonetheless! Thanks for the compliments and the shout out.

Cele: Amen!

Congrats on 601. Sorry about your 6 inches of snow turned to slush. Spring will return in what seems like another 7 months. Fun to meet other photo bloggers, lovely portrait bob took of you!

Happy 601st post! Quite an achievement.

Nice to see the face behind the blog :)

D.C. Confidential said...

Rob: Thanks! We'll see if I can manage another 600. And yes, I'm ready for spring.

Reminds of a joke they tell in Wyoming and it's probably just as applicable for Minnesota. Wyoming has two seasons: this winter and last winter!

Marley: Thank you! I guess this is the first time I've posted a picture of my mug on this blog. Hm. Well, at least it's a good picture!

Perfect-yucky snow, even the yellow snow. Everyone always snaps pictures of beautiful pristine, diamond-like, sparkling glistening snow.

We needed a reality check.

Bob took a wonderful photo of you.

I'm not one bit surprised Bob did a beautiful job.

Andrea: I'm always good for dose of snarky reality! :-)

Petrea: Bob did a lovely job!
