Weird, eh? / I've Been Tagged!

Don't these look like something from another planet? Aliens maybe?

These "visitors" (ice crystals) were found lurking in the shade on my car window

Please note: Sepia Scenes is the post below.

I've been tagged by Antigoni at Antigoni’s Diary
First, here are the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write 6 (or more) random things about yourself.
4. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Okie dokie. Numbers 1 and 2 are checked off.

Here's number 3: 6 things you may or may not have guessed about me:
1. When I was a kid I had several pen pals including two from Europe: England and Germany. I LOVE blogging because it’s like having myriad pen pals

2. I’m curious about other people, how they think and how they live. Good news: I can keep secrets. LOL

3. Writing and research are a BIG part of my day job (the part you didn’t know). But I am NOT a proofreader (the part I’m sure everyone knows).

4. I’m a fairly private person. If you follow my blogs, you may know more about me than my neighbours do...but not as much as my good friends and family know.

5. Until a couple of years ago I rarely took photos because I hated to waste film. Hooray for digital!

6. Since I’m a private person, I realize some people don’t feel comfortable about revealing things about themselves, so I’ve decided NOT to do #4 and #5. But if you want to be tagged, consider yourself tagged.

Now I'm off to Antigoni's to tell her this is posted!

I enjoyed reading the random things you chose to share...

P.S.--the ice crystals look like some kind of bacteria seen through a microscope!

These photos are just amazing, I only see ice crystal that looks exactly like this on drawings or painting. Love them.

George said...

I love your pictures of the ice crystals. Thanks for sharing some random things about yourself.

I like learning about my blogger friends, EG! I can't believe you haven't been taking photos all your like - your photos are extraordinary! :)

maryt/theteach said...

I also meant to say your ice crystals look like weird crabs to me... Ha! :)

Susie of Arabia said...

Those ice crystals are amazingly beautiful. Great close-ups of their detail! Thanks for sharing the info about yourself with us - I'm sure it took a lot for you to do it since you are so private - it's nice to know a little about you.

Carletta said...

Penpals - what a terrific analogy and a lovely thought.
If you rarely took photos until about two years ago there's hope for me yet. :)

I think Rose was right - bacteria crystals.

Ralph said...

These icy crystals look as if they just might be some unique crustaceans. At least that's what I see!

Becky said...

I was just looking at the ice crystals on our back door this evening, and they look like dirt roads. I'll check them out again in the morning. Maybe a good photo op. Yep, yours look like some kind of underwater crabs.

Tammie Lee said...

Oh, these images are wonderful!! I love crystals.

You got captured some ice butterflies too :) They are like art pieces.
And you had energy enough to answer to this tagging.
I still wait for getting that energy :)

I would never have guessed ice or snow -- thought it was maybe soap crystals frozen. Neat!

Barb said...

It looks like cells under a microscope! Creepy/Cool!

Jane Hards Photography said...

Interesting getting to know a little more about you. These images are it has to be said supercool

Darla said...

I second the penpal/blogger relationship. All this an no stamps, LOL!

Beautiful crystals. I have a book somewhere of photo's of ice crystals and how they look different when formed in different places/waters. Have to go dig it out.


Small City Scenes said...

That ice is just so cool--pun intended. lol
It does look like alien matter. Hmmmmm!!! MB

You have great sense of homour. I like that to people. I'm happy because i didn't make a mistake choosing you.

Mojo said...

Phenomenal macro work! And yeah, they do kinda look like the opening of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Cool stuff!
