This page begins with January 12th and some very artistic snow shots taken by Kazuya.   Then there a couple of photos of a Common Raven which hangs out at the Transfer Site where we dump our garbage - it has a white wing feather.   The remainder of the page shows what Kazuya has taken up for a wintertime hobby. I'm not even going to say what it is here, you'll see in a moment or two, and I believe that you'll be quite impressed.   Click on any thumbnail to begin.

Begin January 12th/13th
  On January 12th Kazuya took some snow photos which came out really nicely. They have been lightly processed to change the snow color from deep blue to more of a white shade. The tracks are moose tracks which have been snowed upon a few times.

  Here are two more of the snow photos which Kazuya took on January 12th. The second one in this row has been processed to convert it to an HDR (High Dynamic Range) photo. Very interesting I think.

  We've been seeing this one Common Raven at the Transfer Site where we dump our garbage, which has a white wing feather. Here are three photos which Kazuya has captured this winter.

End January 12th/13th, Begin Kazuya's New Wintertime Hobby
  The first photo in this row has nothing to do with any of the other photos, but it shows me and also the Fairbanks Rings and Things shop where we often do a gig on the First Friday of each month during the off season when there is no Farmer's Market. The second and third shots show some needlework which Kazuya has been working on this winter - a new hobby. Isn't it incredibly beautiful!

  After Kazuya made several pieces of his needlework one of our friends had the idea of making some of them into a concertina book. This person is a professional book maker, so she helped us out. These three photos give you a general idea of a concertina book.

  These two photos also show the completed book. Please note that the cover has an inset piece of needlework, it is not merely stuck on the cover, it is placed into an inset of the hard cover.
