Master Blaster 03/11/08



















White out (c) by Kirk Jordan mightyworks@conwaycorp.net

All pics, Friday, March 7, 2008 Arkansas State Capitol, Little Rock. Around the lunch hour.

Contrary to appearances, this is not the "Capitol Works Project" - its just where I happen to be when a lot of cool stuff happens.

Several days ago I posted a body of photos from this same location with a slightly lighter snow. I called it a "one hit wonder" because, within a day we were back to short sleeves. But Arkansas is not known for uniformity. So two days after short sleeves we braced again for another round. And today -- short sleeve warm!

Photo buff stuff: Falling snow is something of a trick, for the reason that it is white, and tends to fall through whited skies. I was able to pull out some of the flakes with flash, or capture the flakes against a darker backdrop. Even so, its hard to catch the magnitude of a fall in process.

As is, the early blooming Japanese Magnolia are now pretty much bruised, but there are several trees (of a slightly different variety) that have yet to open and should be good for a show.

The Mighty Works Project exists to join the flakes, ride the wind, and have a blast.

Still in development, but feel free to tour
