After a failed attempt to capture “Richmond’s biggest snowstorm so early in the season” on Libby Hill yesterday, I went out this morning with higher hopes.
The result was a much more peaceful (and dry) outing.
My Libby Hill venture failed due to a couple of reasons.
- No views of the city due to the falling snow
- It was challenging to hold my non-waterproof camera and umbrella at the same time to get my shots
- Costs associated with the trip, aka Uber’ing there so I did not have to clean off my car. The surge was at x3 or so.
For that, I gave up, went back home, and watched football like a normal person on Sunday.
(Although that Libby Hill picture still turned out pretty cool.)
Fast forward to this morning, I woke up at 5 am with no alarm and decided to take advantage of it. Grabbed my trusty FujiFilm X100F, turned the film simulation to Acros: Green, and went about capturing the great Richmond snow of 2018.
One of my goals this winter season is to capture a snow-covered NYC in black and white. I used this morning as a test.
I started on Boulevard, ventured down to the VMFA, and looped back up N Belmont Ave before exploring Monument Ave and returning home.
