taking it slow

cold, wet and icy.  The locals call it slippy instead of icy.

  2. The view down Moville main street to the lough is really picturesque!
    Lovely photo of getting on with life in winter, Bill.

  4. Oh, I hate that ice in the streets, so slippery to walk on and lose your balance. I prefer snow walks..:)

  8. That's a very good idea! Broken bones are not fun at any age but so much worse when we are older.

  9. One has to be so careful walking on slippery pavements.

  10. When I walk with WW, I usually have my hiking pole with me, but do the cars stop at crosswalks to let us walk safely? Not all of them, even after I wave my pole at them. Ice isn't the only treacherous thing during the winter months. . .actually anytime of the year, cars loom dangerously. Great photo of reality for older, slow folks out walking.

  12. I remember slipping/falling many times when I lived in Ohio. It hurts!

  13. A beautiful composition, Bill. The light is perfect and I love how you lead the eye to the sea. The old lady pulls it all together and gives it a sense of angst. One cannot help but want to get up and help her make those final steps. Hope you're having a great day!

  15. That does look very slippy. I broke my ankle about 3 years ago, and I try very hard to stay in when the roads/walks have ice.

  16. I bet you'd have to be quite careful and walk slowly across the road.

  17. Oooh, I don't like those slippy conditions. And it looks as if that woman is just about to step onto ice. Your shot has caught one of the sneakier dangers of winter.

  18. Fortunately no traffic. Beautiful shot.

  19. Oh it does look cold Bill! What a super shot with the glimpse of the sea in the background.

  20. Ah, Bill, this will be us one day, sooner than we would like.

  21. She is getting around pretty well. I hope I can say the same in a few years.

  22. I hate slippy sidewalks...our local health services made a public service ad telling people to shuffle like a penguin to avoid falls. LOL

  23. No meu país, Brasil, acabamos de entrar no outono. No seu país, você já deve estar sentindo o perfume das flores.
    A foto revela uma cena bonita do cotidiano.
