photojournalism in musing and pictures


with 3 comments

I woke up to falling snow on New Years Eve. It was just light enough to where I felt comfortable to drive… I’m still an Arizona driver, not used to all of this snow and ice. Never have I seen ‘low traction’ flash across the dashboard of my car so many times until now.

So I went down the street to photograph these trees that I drive past everyday. Kevin suggested I use them as a christmas card next year. Don’t be surprised if you get these from me on cards next year.

As I walked back to my car I thought the playground in Pope Park looked like a fairytale. And I was lucky enough to have this nice guy who wished me a Happy New Year walk through the frame and cover up an ugly trash can (it’s right in front of him).

Then I headed to Rocky Hill to try and find a traffic shot. But who wants to shoot traffic when you find kids sledding instead? One of the editors at the paper calls me the ‘kid photographer’. Ah well.

  1. A fairytale indeed, the photos are beautiful and I’m quite jealous of all that snow. I wish we had animated trees here! Oh, and the last photo is adorable, it’s a keeper :)
