Randomocities

Walking hand in hand we sway closer and futher apart as we make our way a gaggle of children around us when an ice cream truck drives by. . .

This makes me wonder:




Who buys ice cream from an ice cream truck in the dead of winter?  Don't get me wrong I am a big proponent of ice cream all year long but who buys it off an ice cream truck when it is cold outside?  For me ice cream trucks have always preyed on people who are hot from the "noon day sun".

It got me thinking that my whole truck/ice cream/weather hypothesis is wrong...

What else could I have wrong?  Is milk not made for cereal?  Does Garlic not make almost everything taste fantastic?  Is Harry Potter not real?  (I've been to his world and I think it is pretty real...)







Solitude: 

Alone he wandered the path unknown
At peace in the silence of nature
Each crunching foot steps push him further on his exotic adventure

  4. Love these gorgeous photographs! I can say, that although I enjoy ice cream at home and from ice cream stores all year round (I can't help it, I live less than a block from an amazing ice cream store/cafe!) I probably wouldn't buy it off of an ice cream truck in the middle of winter! We don't really have the trucks come by here anyway though, just a man who walks his cart along ringing a bell in the summer.

    Thanks for taking part in the Poetic Winter Photography Challenge!

    1. That's awesome that you have a guy that walks by with a bell. Sounds straight out of a book. I'm with you on the eating ice cream all year round... just not outside :)

  5. Love these photos! That first one totally made me giggle. Too cute! And I love the dreaminess of your third photo. I took a photo of those too, but mine didn't come out nearly as lovely as yours did.

    Thanks so much for joining us in the Poetic Winter Photo Challenge. I hope you remembered to grab the free texture over at my place! Next week's theme will be Warmth. Have a great weekend. :)

    1. I was walking around a botanical garden (yes in the winter... I'm silly like that) and I came across it... it looked to perfectly out of the ordinary to not grab a shot

  9. That is interesting. I don't know if I would buy ice cream off the truck in the winter. : ) Ice cream trucks are perfect in the summer though, aren't they? : )

  11. Great captures! I agree about the ice cream truck! :) I think it could work on little kids even in the winter though. That music is hypnotizing them!

    1. True but I can't help but think about Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. "There are children here somewhere. I can smell them."
