snow

The Eskimo has 52 names for snow because it is important to them; there ought to be as many for love.
~Margaret Atwood

These photographs were taken early this morning to share with you a little of Seattle's snow. My land camera's focus is going wonky, but I still enjoy a good blur here and there.

  10. They're truly beautiful. I feel sad that I've never seen snow. :'(
    Also very happy to see you use a land camera, I have one as well (the 420).
    My focus too is not perfect but I think that adds to the dreamy polaroid effect. <3

  16. great photos, and a lovely quote. have you ever heard of story people, by chance? the guy behind it wrote this a while back, and it reminded me of what you've posted.

    “I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand & the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep & there are no words for that.”
    ― Brian Andreas, Story People

    cheers! happy winter! :)
