Changing Seasons February 2017

The Changing Seasons Monthly Photo Challenge is a blogging challenge by Cardinal Guzman. Each month I will post a photo that I think represents the month.

I shot twice as many photos in February than I did in January but very few of them were outdoors. For me, February has no meaning. It's what I would call the forgettable month. We had more snowstorms than in January but the snow mostly fell during the week and melted by the weekend. I didn't get to shoot any snow scenes.

My weekends were packed with activities. Either I was taking a course or there was a birthday to celebrate or a high school play. This past weekend I helped a friend by shooting interior and exterior photographs of her home. She's downsizing and she and her husband are selling their home and moving to another town nearby. One cool thing about this area of New Jersey is you have many choices of historic towns each with a unique character.

In the third weekend of February, my wife's best friend returned from India with the flu and we were all exposed. My wife was the first to succumb. I took her to the urgent care but as you can expect, the waiting area was full of sick people. So of course despite my normally strong immune system, I am home sick with the flu for the last two days.

So here is my jumbled gallery of photos for February.

    Nice gallery. I've never seen a coffee brewer like that before. Did it taste any different?

      HI Max. Well ... it was certainly a good brew. The siphon produces a delicate, tea-like cup of coffee. Personally, I could not tell the difference from a standard pour over like a Chemex, but definitely smoother than a French Press.

        I mostly drink espresso. I'm not a big fan of the French press.

          In this area, only specialty coffee shops serve espresso (and cappuccino, latte, macchiato, etc.) Princeton has two. Four if you include Panera and Starbuck (puke). The rest served brewed coffee.

            Starbucks is not somewhere I'd go for a coffee. Did it once, never again.

            Starbucks may be the worst thing that ever happened to coffee. When traveling, if Starbucks is my only option, I switch to drinking tea.

    Beautiful pictures. The reflection in the camera lens is very smart shot and those giggles with cake on the face is just so natural.

      Thanks Parul. My niece's uncle tricked her with a hug and when she turned around he had a handful of cake and whipped creaming waiting. Great moment.
