On the street in snow

This was a day of all weather.  It went from a fairly warm 50 degrees in the early hours to wet snow and, rain and then wet snow with temps in the mid thirties .

Not the ideal weather for walking around taking photos, but on the other hand, weather often makes for the best photos.

The shot I chose to represent the day was taken less than a block from our building in fairly heavy snow/sleet, but as with falling leaves it is often hard to catch the motion of the snow in the air (at least I’ve never been very successful at it.)  I started moving the camera with the snow, trying to catch the rush of the flakes as well as the people going by, huddled under umbrellas in various states of winter dress.   Two days ago it was 70 degrees and somehow pulling on the parka this morning seemed unnatural, even with temps in the mid-30′s.

I took over sixty frames of people going by.

This one made the cut.

About Amy

Amy Milstein was born and raised on a farm in Indiana, but after 20+ years considers herself a full-fledged New Yorker. She is married with two kids, who do not go to school but are instead life learners. This means they learn by living in the world (real life ) instead of hearing about it and simulating it in a classroom. With her family, Amy loves to travel, read, watch movies, write, sew, knit - the list is endless.

    This is great. You can almost “feel” the annoyance and mental grumpiness of the people going by.
