corner view ≈ winter

early eve's shadow on l's wall
i have to say, winter time most definitely is a good old sherlock, with darkness all around us and the fear for jack-the-ripper-look-alikes. (let's not overlook the contemporary holmes though/ isn't benedict cumberbatch dish-yyyy... ?).

winter is dark alleys and lamp lit cobbled streets. dickensian as well, it is not knowing, but guessing, fearing mindblowing make-believe, and jeering at sneaky shadows along obscure walls.  

did i say lamp lit
i so love winter time for its fuzzy cosiness, and the  promise of a cuppa, over a real or an electric fire, your place or mine.

lady baltimore cake, no less
that is not to say that by february, oi oi, winter has outstayed its welcome .... ☻. corner view original idea by jane, hosted by theresa, this week's theme by theresa.

  3. Watson, you have detected the most obscure contrasts of winter: darkness and whiteness, cold and warmth.

  4. what contrasts from the inside and outside shots.
    whatever is on your plate looks like comfort food for me.

  5. Very atmospheric. I love those bleak winter stories and films, like Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow, Fargo and Winter's Bone.

  16. Love this! Winter does have a mysteriousness about it, doesn't it? :)

    P.S. Have you seen the new Sherlock Holmes on Masterpiece Theatre? Very good version!
