Friday Finds: Cozy in the Cold

After our visit to the Durham I posted about on Monday, we ate at a favorite restaurant, King Fong's which is almost 100 years old. I've only been there once in the past 20 some years and was excited to introduce my kids to it. The restaurant is upstairs in a very old building in downtown Omaha and when we left, it was beginning to snow lightly.

Now, that everyone is older, I enjoy dropping back behind my family if we walk somewhere.  To take them all in so to speak.

The city at night is a treat.  Just for a different experience from our more rural life.

This book store is next to the restaurant, but of course was closed.  Looks promising!  I've never been in it.
So true, right?  Never Enough Books.

Of course shooting pictures this way requires a slow shutter speed but the effect is nice actually.

The little blur is my granddaughter between her dad and her uncle.  She just tripped along as fast as she could between them thinking it was great fun.  
The bigger blur is my 8 year old who was loving how beautiful it all was along with me.  She just swooned over how striking the Woodmen was, take a picture she said!!

Sure! Although I edited all of these pictures, I didn't color correct much so the warm glow in the photos before is from incandescent lighting from the street lights.  However, the woodmen must be lit up with fluorescent lights as it had no yellow in it.  Just interesting I thought.

It was cold that night, but the lights, the height of the buildings, the snow, and the cloud cover made for quite a bit of "cozy" and I loved it!

Linking with Kim again this week:
