Snow, Crafts and Cora photographs a Ghost

Winter returned over the past few days and we also had some more snow tonight. So I took some photos, which was a tad difficult, since it was already dark.

Still, I got some interesting results and even captured a bonafide “ghost” on camera:

Ghost on camera

This “ghost” surprised me, especially since it wasn’t foggy when I took the photo. In retrospect, I suspect that I breathed out at the wrong moment and the camera flash was reflected from my freezing breath. It’s still a cool effect and almost looks like a ghost in profile.

In other news, my brand new Kobo Glo e-reader still needed a case or pouch. Now I find the commercially available e-reader cases and pouches not all that attractive, never mind quite pricey. So I bought some yarn, got out my crochet needle and made one of my own. I also found a really neat designer button (bought to replace the buttons on a cardigan I no longer own) in my stash. At the back of the pouch, there is an extra pocket for the cable.
