Snow, Snow and more Snow
It's been a long and very cold winter here in Codyland. Many years since I can remember this much snow and below freezing temps. Most likely an effect from the warming of the earth. I have taken the opportunity to try and capture some of the snowy places I visit with my camera. The shot above was taken at a local cemetery and park called Spring Grove. It is considered a national treasure. There are many great things to photograph here.
The above image here is taken at Spring grove as well. I decided to give this one a cyanotype like processing as it had a great deal of blue in it anyway. I think it gives this image a rather other worldly feel.
Finally, we have an image of a small house or crypt. I call this one "The Other White House". It was a beautiful sunny day on this past Thursday when I took these shots. Today however, more snow very windy and cold. I am supposed to be at work at 11 am. Not sure the buses are running on time today, so I may not make the 11 am start time.
On another note, I did manage to enter both of this months Manifest shows which fulfills part of my years goals artistically. Now it is a matter of waiting patiently to see if I make it in either of them. But, it isn't getting in to these shows that is of utmost importance to me. It was to try and keep a goal. I am loving the birth of this passion I have for photography. It is like no other art form for me.The lens becomes an extension of my creative soul. It feels almost like a prosthetic lens in a way. Helping to augment what my natural lens can not do. I think that is the most amazing thing ever.
I hope you all have a great Saturday. I am going to try and plow my way to work. Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
