"I bet he's making an army! In a few days, he could build a hundred snow goons! If each of them built another hundred, then those all built a hundred more, why... that would be pretty cool, if they weren't out to kill me." ~ Calvin

On the second weekend of Winterlude, Lansdowne Park had the football field opened up for kids to come build snowmen. Most of these are small- about three feet tall, and some of them seem to be of geometric, peculiar shapes. And we had snow afterwards, so some of them got buried in the snow, and are present in the form of pyramids of the white stuff. I was oddly reminded of that terracotta army in China, all silent and just waiting for orders.
Going around to the east side of the stadium allowed me a closer bit of access, as the gate was open. I stopped to photograph the ridge line, which is being used these days for toboggans.
Once on the field itself, I photographed some of the snowy figures. This is the first time I've been on the field. The snowmen look like a silent army, some with odd shapes, others looking almost armoured.
Leaving again through the gate, I paused to photograph the pedestrian bridge that links the stadium's north side with the ridge, with the Aberdeen Pavilion behind it.
