Snow …

Snow … reminds me of a documentary that I featured here back in 2012:

Absorbing. Uplifting. Beautiful. A pleasure to be shared. A gift for all seasons.

ON SUNDAY WE HAD A DAY OF DAYS – A BLIZZARD – SNOW KNEE HIGH.

AND YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN HOW WE ENJOYED IT. ALL DAY OUT OF DOORS.

I PHOTOGRAPHING LIKE POSSESSED.

[GEORGIA] O’KEEFFE WANDERING ABOUT IN THE WOODS – & RUSHING DOWN TO THE LAKE – ALL AWONDER … BEAUTY EVERYWHERE – NOTHING BUT BEAUTY … WHITE – WHITE – WHITE – & SOFT AND CLEAN – & MADDENING SHAPES – THE WHOLE WORLD IN THEM.

ALFRED STIEGLITZ 1864 – 1946

Photographer, publisher, sponsor, visionary and yet, a man with flaws whose life, like ours, was strewn with the sparkling jewels and bitter ash of success and failure, happiness and despair, light and darkness.

Beautiful … snow ⛄️
