Central New York got hit with our first real snowfall of the season. I think we had roughly 4 or 5 inches of fluffy white snow in our yard. My girls couldn’t wait to get out and play in it. Although it’s cold, slippery, and not fun to clear from the driveway and sidewalk, these smiles make it all worth it.
A few days after Veterans’ Day, the Syracuse Crunch played host to the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins. Unlike typical openings, the night started out with eight servicemen and women holding a large flag over center ice during the singing of The Star Spangled Banner. The crowd was particularly silent and respectful as the soloist finished the Anthem, and the applause rang out louder and longer in appreciation for the veterans in attendance. It was a fitting tribute and a special night at the War Memorial.
My almost-three-year-old was playing with a pair of vampire teeth, and my timing was accidentally perfect, as a big drip of drool fell from her mouth. I had a wireless slave flash sitting on the table which fired almost directly upwards at her. From there, I added some post-production to complete the 50′s monster movie look.
