In the snow with Rob

New York was scheduled to get fourteen inches of snow today. I’m not sure how many actually fell, but the blanket was pretty thick today. Rob and I went for a walk in Central Park, which had children on sleds on every possible hill. Their winter coats seemed super-saturated against the monochrome landscape. It reminded me of when we went to the glacier in Iceland. As you walk through snow, your eyes become accustomed to a stripped down palette, so any tiny variation of color stands out. Introduce machine made color into that and it almost makes the landscape bleed.
