Story Telling: Warmth (Week 4 Challenge)

I am a little late getting this one posted.    Another somewhat busy week and the weather was so craptastic that it was hard to find the motivation to shoot.  However, this week was probably a better week for this challenge than I would have initially thought.

Lots of snow.  Plenty of chill.  Should be easy to show some kind of warmth in contrast to the winter.  The featured photo here isn’t the one I chose, but it is a damn good example of what I was thinking.  Here are a handful of the options I had for my official week 4 selection:

Now, the header footer and the hot cocoa photos are completely fine and dandy.  However, I set a personal side challenge for this week to submit a picture that didn’t directly or indirectly include my faithful sidekick, Houdini.  He’s a handsome German Shepherd and deserves to be featured as much as possible, but not this week for the sake of me trying to do something different.  That’s what you’ll see him in the top image of this post.  Well, you see his silhouette in the featured image.  It’s great and tells a story, but it isn’t the one I went with.  This however, is my submission:

Just nothing but me and the warmth of the fire on the coldest night of the year (-50ish with the windchill).  It is simple, to the point, and should make you feel the warmth through your screen.   Let me know what you think of any of these.

Last week was a black and white photo of inspiration.

The week before that was a motion shot.
