Cityflake

I was walking along 5th Avenue one night last week when I came upon this most giant snowflake at the corner of 57th Street.


Although it was incredibly cold, I had to capture the scene in the midst of all the holiday hustle and bustle.


I am musing about snowflakes at Mortal Muses today.  I hope you will join me over there and link up with your images of snowflakes, snowstorms, snowmen and whatever other snowflake images you have!

I am also giving away this beautiful set of four dandelion TtV prints that were provided by the amazing Tracy of Hey Harriet from her cool Etsy shop.  Head over to Mortal Muses for a chance to win all four of these photos.


A peaceful and joyous holiday season to everyone!

The second photo is great - love the grain and how you've captured the stillness of the snowflake with the busy-ness of the street. Have a lovely holiday. ... I wrote this and then Kat's comment came up as I was posting, had to go back and edit ... great minds think alike :)
