It was a frozen week in an area that sometimes handles the cold well. The first week of 2018, exploring the frontier. the temps were so cold. In my part of New Jersey, if hot cups of coffee or some other warm drink were not available, hearts would break. So that’s How I began my photography for the year, with a cup of coffee. Looking at the upcoming weather, I knew the week had the possibility of some interesting camera work.
