They gave us a white christmas , did'nt they??

White noise.

Meant dampened feathers, nothing more.
Forceless upon our backs there fall
Infrequent flakes hexagonal,
Devised in many a curious style
To charm our safety for a while,
Where close to earth like mice we go
Under the horizontal snow.

--Edna St. Vincent Millay
The Snow Storm

Frozen silence

Crunch! Very yummy blog! Some things must be eaten.. your blog is one of them!
Loved the first photograph. Isn't it wickedly crazy to see a vehicle covered with snow. You just want to pick the nearest bench, sit down and laugh, and maybe cry a wee bit!

sometimes its worth it like neha says there.

kishore ,
im not much into photography,of waaat ive seen around, i can be classified into greenhorn's greenhorn.
thank u abt the archive images- shall fix when time permits.

totally agree with ur bench-snow-vehicle picture .all i wud add is a steaming cappucino;that reminds me of this ending line from a book- ''all religions shall pass, the only religion that stays is to sit on a chair and gaze at a distance''.
thanks for the visit and bon appetit!!:)

living high,
hope ur NY resos come true;have a white chirtsmas and then ull know about how fingers and toes go crossed!

Christmas without snow are strange. I don´t adore winter, but fresh snow is beautiful. We have nothing here yet, weird.

Loved the first photograph. It looks so magical...like a slice out of a fairy tale...maybe because I have never experienced anything like that. No wonder you are high on Vodka ;)

I really like the way both the photographs have beemn taken. The angle gives a haunting effect to the snow!

Hey June,
thanks for dropping by...yeah this winter has been inconsistent , im told of a place where it snowed just on the day of christmas..what can be made of it??
hope you settle down quickly and my wishes for the best new year so far.

Sudarshan ,
thank you as i said im quite a rookie of snaps...to put it in your word..''i cant even hold acamera properly'', yeah i liked that snap, i had to balance myself on uneven ground to get that.
a fairytale...isnt it??

:A: , thanks :)...yes its the angle that doimnates the frame..stretched perspective.
