February 4th Photo of the Day

The word for today is “a stranger”.  This word is very difficult for me.  I live in a small town.  In winter we don’t have tons of visitors to our town.  When I go out for a walk here, I am not that likely to run into anyone, and if I do it isn’t likely to be a stranger.  I considered switching the words around so I could get “a stranger” photo on a day I was in Whitehorse.  But I didn’t, I’m playing by the rules Smile 
I have waffled on what picture to post.  I considered taking a picture of the book I'm a Stranger Here Myself by Bill Bryson.  But then I realized I don’t own the book. 
I have two offerings – they are both somewhat lame and I can’t decide which is the lamest.  The first: Mr. Sun who hasn’t been around much this winter.  He was here today.  Welcome Stranger!
The second:  I did meet someone while out snowshoeing today.  I was watching my feet then looked up to see someone in the distance.  Could it be “a stranger”???
Well it wasn’t – but I had a few moments of wondering if I might be able to fulfill the word for today. Smile
No mail today, so I didn’t post anything. 


  1. Fun photos for the rest of us anyway! Do the rules say you have to take the photo on the same day or are you allowed to use photos taken in the past?

  2. nevermind, I am loving the photos! Love the one of the sun!
