White on White

Uploaded: February 12, 2010


...so snow is rare in Dallas, but today it snowed all day long. I managed to find some time between my double shift to head out to a local golf course. After about 25 min of walking I found something wierder than snow in Dallas, a white swan. So naturally I chased him all over the golf course taking photos of him, getting him to move left or right by throwing snowballs.
