 I used the process of shallow depth of field to capture my pile of folded towels...that's the "technical" part of this...the sotry part to the choice of folded towels and my life here in NYC is the lovely linen and towels one can purchase here- the quality and the cost are both great. The other story to folded towels is that there is of course only one way to fold towels...Maddy's way...fold in half length wise then in half again then in thirds this way edges can be out of sight when one stack them in the linen cupboard.

What would be a blog entry on February 2 be without a picture of Punxsutawney Phil. Fortunately for me I had a later start and got to see Phil do his "thing" live.

During the ceremony, which begins well before the winter sunrise, Phil emerges from his temporary home on Gobbler's Knob with his wife Phyllis and daughter Phelicia, located in a rural area about 2 miles (3.2 km) east of town. According to the tradition, if Phil sees his shadow and returns to his hole, he has predicted six more weeks of winter-like weather. If Phil does not see his shadow, he has predicted an "early spring."The date of Phil's prognostication is known as Groundhog Day in the United States and Canada, and has been celebrated since 1887.
I'm with Pat Kiernan on NY1 it's a rodent!

Despite the late start I was awake early so was tired on my return home so lay down on the couch for a nap and "on awaking" noticed the light on the water tank on top of the hotel next door. The ongoing challenge of capturing the light :)
