the mission statement for STILL blog, if there were such a thing, would say that it posts one image a day of nature found around me, photographed against a white background. that mission has generally expressed itself as micro bits of nature, or tabletop arrangements, photographed on white paper. but i looked at this photo today, among many i took in a flurry (ahem) of snowfall-inspired images, and i realized it met all of the criteria of a STILL blog image. nature, check. found around me, check. against a white background, check. i just pulled back a little bit on this one, and changed the scale. i love it.
