Photo 52: A Play on Light (Week 23: Seeing Light in Black & White)

This is week 23 of our play on light and our second week focusing on seeing light in black and white. I have to admit that I have been envisioning a photo like this since the beginning of winter and have been waiting for there to be enough snow to make it right. Today was the day! After 11.4 inches fell in Central Park and before I took the kids out for sledding, snowman-building, hot chocolate, lunch and a manicure, I snuck out and spent some time in Central Park alone. I recently purchased a creative lens called a Lensbaby, which is a selective focus lens with a ball and socket configuration so I can choose what I want to focus on with the rest of the image in a blur so to speak. This was actually the first shot I took with the lens and one of my favorites of the day. I envisioned this in black and white long before I took it.
