Snow on the Horizon

"They" say it's going to snow again this weekend. I love they.

We're staying in the city this weekend for the first time since before the holidays and I'm so excited about it. By the time the weekend comes we're usually ready to head out to the total silence of the country but not tonight. We're staying put and I'm getting my camera ready because when that snow starts to come down (hopefully they are right) I'm heading out into the city streets with that thing strapped around my neck.

We've had a lot of snow already this winter but surprisingly enough, I don't mind it so much. I do mind the freezing weather (and lately it's gone way beyond the cold that I can handle) but I live in the city so I don't have to worry about shoveling a walk or driveway and I have brand new boots to give me traction and keep me safe (as safe as I can be since I'm somewhat of a clutz and I'm trying to be extra careful as I carry the extra weight around). Plus, I'm a master at layering.

Happy weekend...what are you up to? Stay warm!

Here are some photographs that I took in Central Park a few weeks ago after the first big snow of the season!

Love love love these photos and the feel in them. I haven't even gone to the park this winter even I work just 2 blocks away... But you might have just inspire me to go get my camera and get out there this weekend during my lunch break.

oh they are stunning ...even the little snowman. Sometimes I wished we lived somewhere it snowed ...but mostly for the great excuse of being "snowed in" and getting to stay home, cozy by the fire. Gorgeous, as always :)

Beautiful and what an adorable snowman! It does make me cold just looking at those photos though. Quite beautiful however!

One of the best parts of my trip home over the holidays was all the snow we got! It was so amazingly beautiful! I'm back in Sweden now, but I'll cross my fingers for more snow for you!

That snowman pic is so precious - I foresee you taking many more pics like those in the future ;-)

HEARTS XOXO

The snow looks so pristine in Central Park. Beautiful!

Unfortunately, the snow doesn't stay like this for very long (especially on the streets). It becomes yucky, brown slush in no time :) But that's NYC for you!

I love seeing NYC through your lens. I've never been (yet) and your blog both satiates my curiosity and makes me want to visit sooo badly. These are great photos.
