Snow!

It snowed today in Hoboken!  Completely caught me off guard, but I was excited because I got to test out my new toy… macro photography extension tubes.

Got this shot of a snowflake! I have others to post, but this is all I uploaded for now…

Super excited over it, I tried taking some pictures during the last snow, but it was really icy, and all the pictures were just white clumps.  We had a few hours of AMAZING large white fluffy snowflakes.  It was important that they floated nicely down, because when they go fast they get all twisted and messed up. Who knew snowflakes were so complicated?!

Hoboken Lepre-Con 2013

Today was Hoboken’s Lepre-Con Day.  A few years back, sometime when we were living in Cali, Hoboken decided to cancel their St. Patty’s Day Parade in an effort to reduce the number of fun people/crazies/drunks who come into town once a year to party / trash the place.  The bars in town decided this was not cool and decided to instead organize what is now called Lepre-Con.  The town was still a big party, but NOTHING like what I remember.  I didn’t notice any people hanging out of windows/ off of roofs this year.  It was pretty much a lot of lines by the bars.

I walked around for a bit to see what was going on and took some snap shots.  Decide for yourself.
