I first saw this child’s drum kit last summer, in a nearby front yard, although I never heard anyone play it or even sit on the throne.

I always carry a small notebook to jot down ideas, future photographs and random (and often kooky) thoughts. At some point I wrote: “Photograph drum kit if it ever snows.”

I remembered the note and the kit this morning. Since my camera batteries were fully drained, I shot it with my iPhone. It doesn’t snow often here, and I didn’t want to wait another year.
