Absence of Colours

As I stand here in front of my computer looking through photos from last weekend’s record snowstorm, it is snowing again outside, the third snowfall in a week now. Today’s snowfall is a lot lighter though, and without the blizzard that last Saturday’s storm brought, it’s actually quite pleasant outside.

In this blog post, I’d like to share some gentler images from last Saturday, images that capture snow with a Japanese taste.

I think these photos speak for themselves, about the way snow muffles everything into silence, and of the pleasant eeriness that arrives when snow starts falling.
