snOMG!

That’s what they were calling it in the twitterverse.
It’s snowed here two weekends in a row. I spent the time bundled up with the fam since my daughter’s only interested in talking about the snow.

I did manage to sneak out (and almost freeze my fingers off) this past Saturday to sneak a few pictures. It’s funny how such beautiful stuff as snow can bring a city like Richmond to a grinding halt.

There was ample sledding at local Forest Hill Park.

The local playground didn’t look as inviting as usual. More like something out of Silent Hill.

There’s just something about a bit of blue filter and a snowy road scene that just evokes desolation. You’d never know the sledders were just down the way.

I thought the images looked a lot like pieces from a film so I borrowed some post process techniques and made them look like this.
Thanks for visiting. I’ll try to update more frequently.

Winter Scenes.

Temperatures over the past weekend and into this week have been in the upper 70s. Without photographic evidence, one would never know that Richmond had been brought to a veritable standstill.

I have some of that evidence:

A Snow Day.

Richmond is just not equipped for large amounts of snow and, as such, the city shut down after we got dumped on yesterday.

I took a few minutes before trying to convince my two-year-old daughter that the snow was fun – she didn’t believe me, came crying back to her mother – to shoot a few images. What’s funny is that as soon as I got outside, I remembered what I’d been told about how snow lied to light meters, telling them that there was more light than necessary. The first Polaroid I shot was way overexposed. I had to underexpose two stops to get these to work. They’re unremarkable, but hey, they’re pictures of snow.

This one is actually exposed correctly as I shot it the night before, while the snow was coming down. The shutter was open for 8 seconds, give or take, at its widest aperture.
