London Snowy Day: Project

My project is intended to visually cover theLondon Snowy Day, which saw exceptionally heavy snowstorm, accompanied by highwinds; something considered a rare phenomenon in these parts of South EastEngland. Having listen to the Metforecast of the coming heavy snow accompanied by high winds, I decided to availmyself of this unique opportunity, to capture some interesting images of Londonhit by the heavy snow. 

Getting out onthe streets that day demanded some courage and risk taking, as most people wouldprefer to remain safely in their homes and viewing the TV channels reportinglive on what was happening.  The fallingheavy snow and high winds meant that visibility was very low, making impossibleto get sharp and well-defined images. Therefore, I contented myself of trying to obtain some interesting blackand white shots, showing various people almost totally covered by the snow,trying to safely find their ways in the blinding blizzard, while each hurriesto his or her destination under their umbrellas, and with lowered shoulders andheads as to indicate the extent of the heavy pressure of snowstorm and heavywinds hat they were apparently subjected to.
