We had a little snowstorm today. Not much to talk about, unless it hadn’t snowed all winter (or actually since mid-fall, 10/29/11).  Little kids had a great time, older kids wondered why it wasn’t a blizzard on a school day, the mayor remembered to get the plows on the street and not to go to Bermuda for the weekend, and Monday is supposed to be between 45-50, or as I like to call it, the new normal.

This is the 2nd weekend of my intensive Photoshop class at ICP.  Great teacher, Kathleen (Kathy) Anderson (Hit the link. Check out her work).  You won’t be seeing the results of the class here for a bit (I don’t think – never say never, right?). I want to play before I publish!

Bryant Park - NYC as we always imagine it in the snow

Cathedral Parkway - NYC as we usually see it during the snow

As it happens several of my favorite blogs are mining their pasts this week. At the same time, I have been listening incessantly to Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, and The Runaways (parts of my past), so I beg your indulgence…

  1. We got it too … the little snow storm 🙂

    The first picture is awesome beyond words..

    I probably should take a course in Photoshop too. I’ve tried to figure it out on my own, but it ain’t easy..

    I have another editor called CaptureONE, that can handle RAW, but I can’t find out how to turn them into .JPGs LOL

  3. I love your photos of NYC. I regret not making the move there when I was young and restless! I always say to people…I live in AL but my soul lives in New York.
    Thank you for sharing your work.

  4. I’m jealous of the snow. I saw in the ten day forecast for London that there is a possibility of snow next Monday. I’m not getting my hopes up because last time they said that it didn’t even rain. Liars!
