I can’t really take credit for the idea. But I like it. As we walked through the falling snow this afternoon, one of my students asked if she could take photos of the snow falling on my face. Seeing as how she is in my advanced art class, I justified the digression from our normal lesson for its creative value. Later, once class was finished, I thought it might be kind of fun to see if I could manage the same thing as a self-portrait. I didn’t get the full snowy effect, but it was a nice way to enjoy the beginnings of the flurries before they get to their inevitable conclusion of, for me, not so enjoyable walls of icy confinement.
