Pictures of the snow

I shot a roll of black and white film over two snowy days on the 6th and 7th of January, 2010.

I wasn’t sure how it would come out, given that black and white film can only “see” the colours black and white, and the snow is white. As it turns out, I’m very pleased. Anything that’s not snow appears as black, and the contrast is striking. I think it’s right what they say about black and white photos showing more texture. I will definitely be using black and white for snowy scenes in future!

This is the snow sitting on my balcony railing. I love the texture.

This is a snowy car on the street outside my flat at night. I like the way the street light deepens the shadows in the tyre tracks.

Some students walk through the archway of the Royal Fort gatehouse on their way to lectures.

Some students built a huge snowman in Royal Fort Gardens. It must have been about ten feet tall, but when I visited it a day later it had started to lean.

This snow was sitting on the branch of a tree outside the physics building.
