LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new year means a blank canvas for photos. It also means frigid weather, and not getting out as often as I otherwise would to capture said photos. Yes, governor, that means I'm soft. I'm not offended by the term.
I saw yesterday that schools in Canada don't cancel class unless the wind chill hits 45 below. Am I softer than schoolchildren in Canada? You'd better believe it. Let he who is without softness cast the first snowball.
Until then, some images from warmer settings to close out the month.
Super Blood Wolf Moon
In a photography fail, I left my tripod at work the night of the "Super Blood Wolf Moon." on Jan. 26. This was shot without any fancy equipment or prime lenses.

Dana Evans drives against North Carolina
One of a series of photos I shot using a Canon 7D borrowed from photographer William Caudill at U of L. Just liked the framing of Louisville guard Dana Evans inside the UNC defender on Jan. 3.

Louisville forward Malik Williams lets an opponent hear about it a little after a big play against North Carolina State on Jan. 24.
Cat sleeping on counter
How do you sleep all day? My cat, Mitten, has pretty good technique. From Jan. 28.
