Untouched

This morning the Philadelphia region got hammered with yet another snowstorm.

 

What was once an anomaly now has become the norm and I’m about as fed up as most other East Coasters.

 

There was once a time and an age that I loved the snow but now it’s become nothing more than a major inconvenience. Today, I decided to fight back and rather than sitting in the house, as I always do, I ventured out into the unknown.

 

I woke up early, dressed myself in ski gear, packed my camera bag and I began my trek. It was an eerie scene walking through quiet and lifeless streets that are usually packed with activity. The further that I walked the more I began to appreciate how the snow had hidden the many blemishes of the dirty and worn city streets. I finally reached FDR Park, which had been transformed into a rural and natural winter landscape. As I wandered through the park trying to compose a decent shot I regained some admiration for the winter and at the very least I'll attempt to get out and take some pictures the next time it snows....
