An angel on skates

Today was my first time on the ice in roughly fifteen years... maybe more. While we were there I had a chance to take a few pics before slipping into my own skates. This one is my favorite.

When I first saw this picture I thought it might be considered a flop, but then again, define 'flop'. I can't decide whether I like the colour photo or the black and white one better, but either way it has a dreamy quality to it, and if you just imagine... wings... An angel on skates :)

Which one do you prefer?



  1. I like the black and white one. Did you skate at Westgate?

  2. The black and white one actually looks like it has more light in it which gives it a sureal quality... love it!
    I skated in my youth and it truly did feel like flying so I loved your analogy. :)

  3. Cindy, I also lean toward the black and white. No, not Westgate. I didn't know they had a rink. This one was in Kempton Park - I believe the place is called Festival mall.

  4. You're right, Lynda. More light does make the black and white one the better picture. The more I look at it the more I like it :) Those who skate well makes it look so easy. Let's just say I had a bit of 'turbulence'... initially at least haha

  5. I think the title was good. Very fitting for the look of the wings.


  6. Couldn't agree with you more, 'Anonymous' :)
