The theme for 52Frames this week was to “Get Low”. That would typically be the kind of theme that would make me take my camera on a walk and try to get familiar places shot from another angle. But it snowed pretty heavily in the past few days – we got more than 20 cm of it, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen that much snow in the city! While it’s still a very reasonable amount of snow compared to other places in the world, going for a walk on slippery surfaces lugging a fairly expensive camera that already went in service a few months ago seemed like a Bad Idea™. So I stayed home, and looked at the snow on my balcony.
It turns out that said balcony is partly protected by a bit of roof, and that the snow distribution showed it very well. My first pictures were of the snowed-in balcony chairs (which look exactly like a miniature car under the snow…), but I ended up going for a more abstract shot that showed the texture of the snow better.
And I even claimed the extra credit “Leading Lines”, because, well, I accidentally got one in the shot 😉
