Two Great Tastes: Snow & Trains

If the Milton S. Hershey Company is to be believed, chocolate and peanut butter are two great tastes that taste great together.  The number of great one-two combinations certainly doesn’t stop there, though.  I’d suggest that the guitar and the accordion are two great sounds that harmonize great together.  Fresh mowed grass and burning charcoal are certainly two great aromas that smell great together.  Kirsten’s mother believed that bright orange and deep purple were two great colors that looked great together, and I wouldn’t argue about that, though I don’t think I’ve run it up the flagpole myself.  Watching French cop movies with a cat on your chest are certainly two great sensations that, uh, feel good together.

If you’ve spent any time around Bloomfield, you know that Zubaz and tank tops are two great fashions that look great together.  Deep-fried cod and mac & cheese are two great solemn religious observances that celebrate the rebirth of Christ great together.  A lot of people will tell you that biceps and tattoo ink are in this same league, but we’re staying mum on that one.

Where am I going with this?  Oh yeah!  Here on this first day of Spring, let’s say goodbye to Ol’ Coldipants with one of the action blog photographer’s great two-fers: snow and trains. Black rail cars, white snow, blips of color that pop like the first flowers right around the corner–they just work, and they work great together.
