White Out

It never snows in Bristol.....

 

Well, thats not really true but if it does its about as minor a weather event as you can imagine.  March 2018 and the forecast is for a major weather event, a snow event.....

Knowing what this can do to my daily commute I resign myself to a long walk and the possibility of some photographic opportunities that never usually happen at my own front door.  I grab my little MJUII and drop a roll of Acros 100 into the back.  I really love this little camera.  Okay you cannot hide as you do with a Yasihca T3  staring down into a viewfinder whilst avoiding eye contact.  The MJU does however have something else, speed and a degree of anonymity, its small and unobtrusive and fits in the hand with ease.

I love what snow does to the environment.  The change in light, the deadening of sound and, well most of all, the way it brings people together. Okay, it may just be an impromptu snow ball fight or the challenge of helping a car get moving with a push and a slip, but it levels and breaks down barriers.
