Do they throw salt on the roads, Frank?
Frank L Croston.: Cinders Ray, lots of old volcano's around here. smile
C'est très beau avec cette neige.
Frank L Croston.: Its a nice place without the snow Martine, but the snow adds to it, thanks.
Ah, the "Pink Church"! Some lovely snow you've captured!
Frank L Croston.: There was a lot to capture, Elizabeth.
I'm really enjoying your images. You're starting to get a feel and style all of your own.
Frank L Croston.: I'm pleased you are Rob, thats much appreciated.
so pretty--not quite England is it?
Frank L Croston.: No, definitely not, Larry, everything would have shut down in England at half this amount of snow. smile
Oh, how lovely, Frank. I would love to see a snowy scene again with my own eyes!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Ginnie, we are getting a lot more on Sunday night, come on over! smile

This is beautiful, Frank. I know, not everybody is happy with snow but I think it adds to the picture. Is this at the corner of N Beaver Street and W Dale Avenue? I assumed you took a long walk.....
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Astrid, oh I like the snow, I love taking pic's of it. I do believe you are right, I didn't know you knew Flagstaff ? Yes, I took a long walk around there capturing the snow scenes, it was great.

A nice looking road too Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It is Andrew, I drive it most days, Elizabeths work place is behind up the hill.

The two trucks should have been older model ox carts - heh, it would have been quite a capture.

Still a great shot.
Frank L Croston.: It would, I'd have to had a big wooden plate camera though Louis. smile Thank you.

A wonderful wintery town with high heaps of snow - as I recall from my childhood times.
Frank L Croston.: Me too, Philine, it doesn't seem to happen much in my part of the U.K. anymore.
We have less but by Sunday we could be equal. My daughter will be delighted as they have only been able to ski once.
Frank L Croston.: This is actually from last year, but we are about to get eight inches or so on Sunday night, this will add to whats left from the last lot. They will be happy at the Snowbowl.
Unfortunately we'll get lots of Phonecians up for the snow.
This reminds me of a lovely winter scene from a classic B&W Hollywood movie, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It does have that look Beverley, I'm happy to accept that. smile
This looks very old world rather than new world Frank
Frank L Croston.: Its quite a unique building here Bill, I can see what you mean. Maybe I should do a series on Flagstaff, show you what its like.

Oh wonderful! I expect life just carries on as it did before?
Frank L Croston.: Pretty much Alan, the schools open later, thats about it. smile
I'm guessing this might be the older part of Flagstaff going by that lovely church. That's quite a snowfall, presumably they get more than you used to back here.
Frank L Croston.: Its just on the edge of 'downtown' which I would think is the oldest part of town, of course, old is a relative term here. I've seen buildings called historic aged from 1947, it seems I'm an historic age
I've just Googled the church, I see it is a Catholic one and soem of the interior shots I've come across show what a beautiful building it is.
Frank L Croston.: I've never been inside, I believe it needs some restoration and there is a fund for it.
i love this pint of view Frank....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Peter, I drive down it most days.
Lovely treatment, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Tom.
