265/365 – Wet Snowfall Colour Version

Back to the photos I am presenting in our group exhibition (Momenta), you might recall a black and white photo called “Wet Snowfall” on January 19th 2015, blog post 34/365. A photo seen through a computer monitor can look totally different once printed. I had “Wet Snowfall” printed and did not like the way it looked at all, but I wanted it to be part of the exhibit. So I decided to go back to the color version and reworked it. Once printed, that version was truly superior in my opinion.

89/365 – The show must go on

It was starting to look and feel like spring, but in this part of the world, you just never know. We had snow waltzing down  the sky all day today.

Funny how it is, yesterday I said: “I am tired of shooting winter scenes”. Well first thing this morning (I mean 6:30) I was out with my camera, because it was simply glorious. I guess we may get tired of it, but the beauty of a fresh snowfall is always magical to me.

67/365 – White Waves

Winter is the king of showmen,
Turning tree stumps into snowmen
And houses into birthday cakes
And spreading sugar over lakes.
Smooth and clean and frosty white,
The world looks good enough to bite.
That’s the season to be young,
Catching snowflakes on your tongue.
Snow is snowy when it’s snowing,
I’m sorry it’s slushy when it’s going.

2/365 – Falling With A Vengeance

Today the snow is back, falling with a vengeance, covering this little part of the world with a beautiful white fluffy carpet.

~Les jours se suivent mais, ne se ressemblent guère~

I am realizing that the difficulty with this project is to stick to one photo per day. So sometimes like today, I will allow myself to post a second one in here.

Falling With A Vengeange

1/365 Ever Changing Snow

Today is the beginning of something very daunting. In an effort to bring some discipline and some much-needed practice everyday with photography, I am staring a 365-Day Project. I cannot promise amazing photos every time, but I will do my best to post everyday.

This first one was taking with an iPhone 6, in the long winding driveway of our country house in NYS. We have had our first snowstorm of the season last week and until yesterday; the trees were heavy with snow, postcard perfect. Today the snow is rapidly melting. Winter is always so unpredictable.
