Thematic Photographic 244 - Frozen

Anything but plain vanilla
Deerfield Beach, FL
December 2009
It may seem anathema to choose frozen as a theme when the planet - okay, the northern hemisphere - is busy warming up and breaking free from a seemingly never-ending winter. But humor me for a moment.

Frozen doesn't necessarily need to be a winter thing. Even if you don't live in the Great White North, there's plenty of thematic potential closer to home. I found this one on a trip to the ice cream store with the munchkins - in Florida, of all places - and I'm betting you'll all find a way to interpret the theme in all sorts of creative ways.

Your turn: Thematic is our weekly photo sharing/exploration/learning thing. It's certainly not competitive, and is designed to get us to look through our lenses just a little differently. To participate, grab a photo that evokes or reflects the weekly theme and share it on your blog or website (or Pinterest or Instagram or Twitter or wherever else you hang out online.) Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to share the joy and pop back in through the week to share additional pics. For more background, click here. And have fun - because that's why we do this in the first place!

First of all...yes, I'd love some soft vanilla ice cream...you know I'll have to hit up the DQ later now that you've posted that picture, huh? ;-)

But the minute I saw the theme, I had to post this - it came across my desktop this week, and being someone to whom the tiger means a lot, it caught my eye. I think it is astounding - and it goes nicely with Thematic Photographic 244!

Wow. Just the fact that you THOUGHT of photographing a close up of soft-serve ice cream is amazing.

So...I guess I'm late with this.

Mr. Cardinal was frozen by the chaos!

Too cold for ice cream yet, but soon.

Carmi - that picture of the ice cream is crazy cool (no pun intended)! I love the shadowing going on.

Loving the shots from everyone else too! Here's my submission: http://jessbrady1035.wordpress.com/2013/05/15/thematic-photographic-244-frozen-2/

Carmi, now that you have all of us screaming, here is my frozen moment.

Nice shot of the ice cream, and great theme since it's been almost 90F (32C) here for the last couple of days. Gonna be hard to find something frozen.
