It's funny how so many of the photos for this project have just kind of happened. I woke up this morning with absolutely no idea where I'd go or what I'd like to shoot for today's image. As I poured my first cup of coffee for the day, I noticed through the kitchen window that big, fluffy flakes of snow were falling and thought this fresh white blanket might make for a nice landscape shot or something.
An hour or so later I stepped outside and immediately noticed the perfect snowflakes settling on and standing out so nicely against the sleeve of my black jacket. Ding! I had an idea.
I set out a sheet of black poster paper to collect snowflakes for a while then dug out my set of macro closeup filters and tripod. Ten minutes later I set up the camera, carefully focused and clicked. The image for day 7 was captured by 8:30 am and hardly had to leave the house.
