The snow that came down this afternoon was light and not sticking to the ground as it fell. I tried a couple of images showing the snow in a straight forward way, like below. They simply were not working well, so as I was sitting in my car wondering where to go for a better image of the weather I decided to try something a bit more unusual, and use the melted snow on the window as a filter to create an impressionistic feel to this image of a mailbox mounted on top of an old wagon wheel. Sure it has been done before, but what in photojournalism hasn't?
Laguna Acoma Middle school students Austin Jones, left, and Kristopher Vallo, both sixth graders, laugh together after finding themselves to be the only two students left in the Grants/Cibola County school district spelling bee Tuesday morning at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Grants. The two sixth graders outlasted 95 other students to win the bee.
