London Snowy Day
Project info

My project is intended to visually cover the London Snowy Day, which saw exceptionally heavy snowstorm, accompanied by high winds; something considered a rare phenomenon in these parts of South East England. Having listen to the Met forecast of the coming heavy snow accompanied by high winds, I decided to avail myself of this unique opportunity, to capture some interesting images of London hit by the heavy snow. Getting out on the streets that day demanded some courage and risk taking, as most people would prefer to remain safely in their homes and viewing the TV channels reporting live on what was happening. The falling heavy snow and high winds meant that visibility was very low, making impossible to get sharp and well-defined images. Therefore, I contented myself of trying to obtain some interesting black and white shots, showing various people almost totally covered by the snow, trying to safely find their ways in the blinding blizzard, while each hurries to his or her destination under their umbrellas, and with lowered shoulders and heads as to indicate the extent of the heavy pressure of snowstorm and heavy winds hat they were apparently subjected to.
