It was icy cold out today. “Go play in the snow” she said. “It’ll be fun” she said. It’s nice that she is handy with a match to help thaw me out.

Some thought and time went into this photo. While my minifig was freezing in the ice-cube tray, I did some practice shots with Audrey’s minifig. I had to figure out how to shoot close in and clear, bounce light off of an index card from the built-in flash, and how to get the match lit in a strong breeze.

It was cold, icy, windy, wet, under an umbrella, camera on a mini tripod, 16-55mm kit lens with 10mm macro tube, and a huge box of matches. Totally worth it.
