Yesterday we woke to the promised winter storm: about 6″ of snow on the ground and still coming down thickly.  It snowed well into the late afternoon, a gloriously beautiful day!  By the time it stopped, it was probably close to 10″, making a walk to the nearby grocery store for buy-one-get-one pizza for National Pizza Day quite a bit of exercise.  More snow’s in the forecast for tomorrow and Sunday.  I may have to head over to the park in the morning!

Choosing the six-word title for today’s post was almost as difficult as choosing how to edit this shot.  Hopefully you’ll enjoy both and hopefully also have a wonder-filled weekend.  I know I will.

Sometimes less is more, as Cee demonstrates this week in her “Compose Yourself Photo Challenge”, “Simplicity” edition. The “simplicity” challenge: Show us 4 to 6 photos that you have taken that are extremely simple. Show us your uncropped and unedited versions. Sharpening and saturation is allowed.

Here are my four simple originals:

For some additional fun:  Cropping: show us one before and after cropped simplicity photo.  Color vs. B&W: show us the same photo one color and one black and white photo.

Here’s my cropped photo. ( Click on any photo to see it larger.)

Here are the color and black-and-white versions.
