Through My Lens : Snow

January 24, 2012

Living in New York, I have a love/hate relationship with snow. I'm often awestruck by it's beauty as the snow falls, frosting the city in white but it's another story once I find myself having to navigate through the black slush that it inevitably becomes. We were hit with record snowfalls last winter but so far it's been fairly quiet on that front this year. I almost miss it as snow is a subject matter that I never tire of photographing cause it can be so magical. In that spirit I wanted to share a few of my favorite snowy images. It can get a little tricky but I love taking my doll/photo muse Rena out for photoshoots in the snow. Does it snow where you live and is it something you like or not?

  6. You have some beautiful pictures! I was hoping to bump into at least 1 snowy day during my winter trip but of no luck. I guess no snow for me this year.
    Thanks for visiting my blog! Yea, I got my Louboutin from my bf as a birthday present =) I hope to see you again soon at my blog.

  7. Gorgeous images, love! NY can be so magical in the snow but you're right. It quickly turns to a nightmare :) xoxo

  8. These pictures are absolutely beautiful! I think snow always looks so picturesque. I love snow as it is so pretty, but after a while when it turns into sludge/ice it isn't so pleasant. We usually get a bout of snow but this winter it's been relatively mild! xo

  9. Love the fourth photo, the trees are so beautiful.

    I'm from Iceland so I'm definitely used to snow. One evening, a few days before Christmas, it began snowing in Antwerp but the snow was gone the day after, and we haven't had any snow since. I'm kind of hoping we'll be greeting spring early this year ;-)

  13. I love looking at a frosty scene but I get cold so easily and the dreaded black slush is probably what sent me packing to California! Very pretty images!

  16. Wow, if we get this kind of snow here in the UK, the whole country would shut down. I hope to visit NY one day.

    1. Safe to say no massive snow storms in the UK then. I hope you'll make that happen :)

  21. These pics are beautiful! I love your doll pic. I think that's so cool. It never snows in New Orleans. Well the last time was in 2005 or 07 for like 5 minutes. LOL I think snow would cripple this city. No one is use to it. :D

  26. what amazing images, just adore NYC .. yep, it's snow here sometimes, but not as often and wonderful like back in the days! x

  27. I totally agree with you about snow. It's nice when it comes down and things get quieter and pretty. Then things get dirty and gross and you have to trek through it which is much less fun.

    I love the pictures you took, especially the closeup of the branch. Rena looks a bit like the doll in Batchelor's Vegetable Store {one of the first episodes I think}. Have you seen that show?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes I totally dread trekking through the gross stuff.

      Thanks! I am watching Bachelor's Vegetable Store but my friend told me about all the tragic melodrama in the first 2 eps. so I kinda read recaps and skipped them. I'm so bad I know ;p I must go take a look now. Rena does come from a Korean doll company so I wouldn't be surprised.

  32. Wooooowwwww, such beautiful pictures!! It's really snowing over there! We did get some snow here in Vancouver but nothing compared to that. Plus, it doesn't usually stick and instead melts and turns dirty and grey from the traffic, I hate that :(

  50. SIGHHHH I wish it snowed in S'pore!! :(( haha but i guess the grass is always greener on the other side. Most people I've spoken to who have to deal with the snow hate it and people like me? DREAM ABOUT IT :D

    1. Ooh it would be sooo strange if it snowed in Singapore. So true about the grass being greener but snow is something that is pretty fun if you haven't experienced it before.

  51. What beautiful photos!

    I stayed indoors during Vancouver's snowstorm, but that was because I was sick. If I had been well, I would have taken my camera outside and snapped, snapped, snapped away.

  55. Beautiful photos! It's something magical about snow. I always dream of a white Christmas and I can not imagine spending Christmas somewhere warm. We haven't had any snow though this winter until two days ago and since then it's been snowing non-stop. We're practically snowed-in, it's all white, bright and beautiful, but when it turns into a black slush I won't enjoy it that much. xo
