In what I presume to be this season’s last winter photoshot I noticed how big and beautiful snowflakes were falling on my camera, it was cold enough they didn’t melt. As you can’t take photos of something sitting on the body of your camera, I chased a few, and tried to shot them from my hand.

The photo is not perfect, as I held the snowflake in the left hand, the camera with the lenses extended to the max in the right hand, in freezing cold and snow over the ankles:


Do you know the snowflakes are supposed to be unique, not two identical ones? Each one will have its own imperfections and be distinct. You know, just like people, only the snowflakes are so many more and so ephemeral…
