A Snow Sanctuary
December 23, 2009 § 19 Comments
Brrr…it is cold and it is beautiful outside. The City got snowed in last Saturday and I thought I was not going to miss it for the world. Eventually, I did miss it considerably. I decided to step out and shoot Sunday afternoon and…! All the streets and pavements had been scooped up and wiped clean. Piles of white lay lining the grey pavements. I of all people, should have known. So yeah, I was furious with myself for the better part of the afternoon for not stepping out when it was snowing. You know that feeling?
Where is a snow starved lover to go? Shh…There is a sanctuary. A snow haven for laggards like me.—
Off I went to Central Park… no matter how cliched I feared the views would be, how touristy I dreaded it might get or how well I knew that I would miss walking the streets. You know what? I have been a good girl. I have dutifully clicked the snowiest whites, and wonderingly gazed and gazed for long in between the shots.
If it were not for the snow, winters would be a dreary course to traverse. I love the lushness of snow. Nothing else out there O! Weather God, to suit all moods at once!
This was NYC’s first snow this winter, and I am already longing for more. So many miles to trek, so little time. I want more. If Santa is around, I certainly hope he is listening.
Until then, come, let’s play. Forget the cold.
Let it snow.
And then, just to remember the last glimpse on my way back…
