Pixelated! "Patiently Waiting for Spring Challenge"

I am pixelated!  Waiting for spring seems to be a little tedious come March.  I stare out my window at the schizophrenic weather that is happening outside I sigh and think, "When is it going to be warm?"  Today the weather was manic, we had high winds, dark grey clouds, heavy rain, sun and rainbows, most of this was happening at the same time.  But there are signs of spring everywhere, birds are chirping like crazy, the trees are in blossom and daffodils and tulips are poking through the dirt.  This is my contribution to
Trobairitz's blog challenge. I love challenges!

 Me at work finishing up a long day.  This was the first time I ever tried the self timer.  Wow I like to live on the edge.

the last photo is awesome. it shows your serious side, and all those files in the background.

It appears that you are staring at me, and I am staring back

Oooh good job on two pictures. I like the last one, you look so content.

And don't worry about the self timer, I've only used mine once on a group ride. Good job our friends were patient as I was running back and forth to the camera in the middle of the road.

Great effect - Love the dramatic style! Agreed on the weather. My plum tree is flowering but I'm afraid the poor blossoms will be blown into the next town!

Lovely pics, I like the pixelation effect.

It was 4C over here today, no wonder spring is not coming out of the closet.

The first image gives me the feeling of another comic book frame. Very nice. But the second self portrait reveals th smile. :)

Love the pictures.

Watch what you wish for--it's already starting into a killer hot summer here.

It's the same here! Weird! Today it was 80 degrees!

You look like you're thinking, "Well, what next weatherman?!" LOL
