Get a little closer

 Don't be shy.

Get a little closer

with Arrid Extra Dry.

Why do I still remember a commercial from 20+ years ago?

Who said that advertising doesn't work?

Just now, I exclaimed to Sarah, who's sitting near me in the office, "Wow, they still make Arrid Extra Dry deodorant!"

I know because I googled for the correct spelling and saw that you can order some should you be in need.

Don't you wish YOU shared an office with someone who takes macro pictures of snowflakes and then randomly associates them with vintage deodorant commercials?

Sarah sure is a lucky gal.

I can't say for certain if she agrees or not.

Regardless, it's snowing today.

Pellet-like flakes that look like tiny styrofoam beads, but upon closer inspection...

...are obviously not.

I came away with hundreds of images from outside our new studio, and can affirm that I saw no two snowflakes that were just alike.

Wonders never cease.

Beautiful beautiful breathtaking - photos of snowflakes!
I use to work with someone who could sing you just about any commercial from the past 30 years at the drop of a hat!

Very beautiful. Thank you for sharing your photography talent. These stunning snowflakes just made my day :)
Glad someone else has vintage commercial slogans pop into her head. My favorite is the little girl saying "I love the smell of my Daddy."

When i first opened the page and saw the title (only) the rest of the jingle went through my head. We must be about the same age. I LOVE the pics. Thanks for those.

I wish I worked in an office with someone who took macro shots, mostly so i could borrow the lens!!!

LOVE the photos. We don't get snow in Florida (hahaha) so it's special to see through such a great lens. Very pretty. Gorgeous.

My youngest sister is the jingle queen in our family. I do remember some old jingles and catch phrases myself. It's fun reminiscing.

Thanks for sharing such delightful photos of what is coming down outside my window right now!
As don't need to go anywhere, it's fine with me.
