He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold? Psalms 147: 17

I couldn't believe my eyes as I honestly did not see the smoker standing alone in the cold against the brick wall with the cigarette when I shot the picture yesterday because I was concentrating on the icicles hanging on the other side...I was sitting in the car waiting for my husband who was paying for gas in a convenience store when my eyes locked on the icicles hanging precariously on the Creamery wall across the road and shot this through the windshield. For me what makes photography fascinating is not always what we see but what we miss when we shoot the picture, that comes to light afterward.

    A perfect theme for your photo! That icicle would certainly attract your attention; its no wonder you missed the smoker when you were taking the shot!!

    They've got to want a nicotine buzz really badly to be out in that extreme cold! Well documented!!

    I have taken 'surprise' photos also, it is great most of the time : ). The icicles look like they could be lethal!!! This is a n interesting capture and it does fit the theme.
