As of yesterday I was prepared for a very exciting day of laundry and editing, until the weather decided I should change plans.
This is officially the first Snow of the year, and my first time seeing a real snowstorm. Laundry and projects would have to be put on hold for a few more hours while I put my photojournalist hat on.
Knowing there was no way I could change lenses, I took with me my Sony NEX-5N with the 16mm as my wide angle camera and my trusty Nikon D7000 with the 70-200mm as my long range lens. You can see in my photo how much im looking forward to freezing my ass off.
From Wall Street to Seaport it was serene,a blanket of silence calming the few people (AND DOGS) that remained on the street
There is nothing cuter than dogs in boots.
This man sat motionless unprotected from the elements almost like a statue, or a corpse. Time to leave Wallst
After Wallst, i hit 59st hoping to see Central Park, the wind was very bitter here.
Birdie had no fear, standing in the middle of the street. No fucks were given.
I have nothing but admiration and respect for the amount of dedication it takes to run under these conditions.
Casualty of the cold
This little fella was trying it's best to capture a squirrel that was making fun of him from the tree
Most of the lake near the Bethesda Terra was frozen
Very tired, but happy, at this point I could barely feel my fingers when shooting and it was time to go back.
This gorgeous husky was outside a nearby store staring calmy as I left.
