Through a Wet Lens

By now the snow’s nearly all gone. I noticed one last solitary ice floe in the river as I walked home today, but that appears to be the end of the story on winter.

What’s most striking about this image is the whiteness of the world beyond this iron circle. It reminds me of the illustrations of escalators ascending into the clouds. This proved not to be a bridge to heaven, but rather the same ol’ connection to Boston that Cambridge has always enjoyed.

Also note the snow flecks/droplets all over the lens. I could either A. store my camera away in a great waterproof backpack or B. strap a semi-water-resistant sleeve over it and document the day to its fullest. In all honesty I would have completely forgotten this day ever happened had I not come upon this just now.

Eventually I’ll push my equipment too far I’m sure, but until then I’ll revel in images like this that I captured in less than ideal conditions.
