This week’s photography homework had the options of shooting two out of three items: a bench, a fire hydrant and a monument. I took a lot of photos of colourful hydrants against the snow and tried to find one of the painted mural ones to no avail. I shot a wonderful photo of the monument to honour Nellie McClung. I took several benches and liked them. I decided to go shopping. I saw the clean benches without any snow as I walked towards one of the stores and then I saw this: icicles dripping off a bench arm. I spotted it from afar and thought this was the photo that could make the difference. Sometimes we just need eyes to see.
