As a rule, I don't keep seasons on The New Found Photography. If I've got a nice beach picture, and I've got a few in the queue, I'm as likely to post them in January as in July. But, since the last post was so summery, I thought this snow scene was a great follow up.
I bought this image here, in southern California, so it's a good bet that I've driven this road. I doubt that stone structure is there anymore, but it made a good spot to take a leap into winter, though I've got a funny feeling that there's a bit of stage craft in this photo. I think the leaper didn't leap, so much as pretended to leap for the camera.
Now, let me get into printer mode for a bit. Notice all the white spots and lines. That's not snow, it's a dirty negative. This must have been printed in a home darkroom. Pro printers don't last if they can't be bothered to clean the neg before exposure.
