The skylights are covered with snow, creating a dim, twilight mood in the living room. A fire crackes in the grate and Greg Maroney’s exquisite piano solo drifts down from the speakers in the loft. While the rest of the world goes about the business of life, the mood in my corner of New Hampshire is soft and silent.
I was inspired by my friend, Alan‘s blog post this morning which was all black and white photography. I used to shoot only B&W and had a darkroom where ever I was in the world. It has been years since I thought about looking at the world through that lens. A good snow storm is the perfect time for shooting with this focus.
I will now take my lunch break, curled up near the fire with a good book, Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. You’ve got to love snow days! Time to play, time to reflect. Time to try on new things. Here’s to expanding your horizons!
