Yesterday I took the day off from work because my parents were supposed to come in and hang out, but they couldn’t due to the threat of snow. Determined not to waste a precious weekday off, I decided to venture downtown to pick up something that I “needed” (which I will be blogging about soon. It wasn’t really anything too exciting but of course I got really excited about it). Anyway, it was about the worst weather in the world (freezing, slushy rain) so I popped into Chalait to thaw out with a matcha latte. As I was sipping and looking out the window, the weather turned from freezing rain to actual snow. Instead of heading home after my latte as I’d been planning to do, I couldn’t help but seize the opportunity to capture some pictures of the West Village while fresh flurries fell (something I’ve always wanted to do). I froze my fingers and toes off (seriously – my rain boots are in no way slush-puddle proof), and pretty much drowned my camera, but it was still fun! Read on to see the pictures:
Sidenote: this photo session finally motivated me to buy a lens hood for my camera. Only took me about, oh, two years.
