Predictable? Yes! Necessary? Hell Yeah!!
So if you haven’t noticed, its been snowing rather a lot in the UK! I do love snow, the way it suddenly makes everything equal, all with the same pure white coat, although it does cause quite a few problems once it gets going! However, enough of that, I don’t want to babble on about how this year’s helping of the white stuff has caused travel ‘chaos’ or how ‘badly’ councils have done at looking after the roads, because I really don’t think pointing the finger and blaming everyone else helps, also Highways Agencies in Sussex and Kent have both done a lot better than last year!
Anyway, the snow, like I said I do love snow, it brings out this community spirited side of people that we don’t see often enough, people using local shops, helping to grit the pavements, visiting vulnerable neighbours etc etc… but trying to get out in it on a little photo shoot can be a bit stressful when everyone else seems to be enjoying themselves and your freezing your fingers off trying to find that unique shot no one else has thought of, which becomes even harder once you realise (to quote a very grumpy woman who pushed by me in Canterbury) ‘everyone SUDDENLY thinks they’re a photographer when it snows’. Never the less I did get out there in Canterbury, Kent during the first bout of snow at the beginning of December and have recently been shooting in Lewes, East Sussex.
Hope you enjoy my shots and please let me know what you think.
