January 1, 2012 — A White New Year

In­spired my by friend Heather Byington’s 365 project, I have de­cid­ed to do my own pho­to-a-day project. I will be ex­plor­ing as many as­pects of pho­to­jour­nal­ism as I can over the course of the year.

A man lays down in the snow to take a picture of his custom bicycle in Loring Park near downtown Minneapolis, Minn. on the evening of Jan. 1, 2012.
Jan. 1, 2012, Min­neapo­lis — A man lays down in the snow to take a pic­ture of his cus­tom bi­cy­cle in Lor­ing Park near down­town Min­neapo­lis, Minn. on the evening of Jan. 1, 2012. Af­ter a un­sea­son­ably warm De­cem­ber, Moth­er Na­ture took a cold turn on New Year’s Eve, drop­ping 10 de­grees, an inch of snow and blow­ing wind gusts up to 35 mph through New Year’s Day, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tion­al Weath­er Ser­vice.

Since it was so cold to­day af­ter be­ing warm in De­cem­ber, I knew I want­ed some­thing show­ing the cold and I didn’t have to go any far­ther than Lor­ing Park to get this im­age of a man pho­tograph­ing his bi­cy­cle.
