Snowball Fight, in Light of Pharmacy



Reservoir Building In Snow






Metropolitan Museum Windows in Snow




Sewer Drain in Snow

It does feels good to go back to my black & white ways. The 300D, though it got completely soaked - I had no problems with it. My technique for snow shooting (especially when it is falling) is to keep the camera in the bag, but turned on, with my gloved hand on it ready to take it out and shoot quickly. In other words, nothing fancy. Lenses in the bag today: 24mm f2.8; 35mm f2.0 and 100mm f2.0. Switching lenses while the snow is falling and with gloves on, not really that bad either, or else I'm just used to it.

A BLIZZARD IS ON THE WAY.

THOSE VENTURING OUTDOORS MAY BECOME LOST OR DISORIENTED... SO PEOPLE IN THE WARNING AREA SHOULD STAY INDOORS. (The Weather Website)

I just wanted at least one good snowstorm this winter and I will get my wish. I wonder whether the Secret Garden is closed during a snowstorm? I imagine that it would be amazing to see with a foot of snow.

This gets my regular old get the camera and get out there juices flowing again. I don't want to do mosaics today. I want to photograph the snowstorm. Even if it is just to walk up to the corner on 3rd and 86th.... Or maybe hop on the train and go down to Times Square... I would like to be lost and disoriented for a while, that is my normal state anyway.

With the wind chill it is supposed to feel like zero degrees. 
Question: does windchill count as far as how cold it feels to the camera and its' batteries, or do only living things feel wind chill?
