Photo of the Week: Snow

IMG_4134New York City, USA

This picture was taken last year after one of the many snow storms in the New York area.  The ground was blanketed by a fresh layer of soft white powder making everything shiny and bright again.  The busy promenade at Bryant Park was uncharacteristically quiet.  This year, however,  the weather has been pretty mild.  It’s already the end of February, and there haven’t been too many cold days which makes me optimistic that spring will come earlier.

Kids and adults rejoiced, it was a snow day.  By mid-afternoon, the snow had stopped and the blizzard of the decade was a mere 6 inches of snow.  Continue reading
