Snow Days in Vancouver Turn My World Black & White

Last Thursday, February 22, Nancy Merrill announced her weekly challenge of ‘Your Weather Today’.

It was perfect for me because that morning I had run to the windows and seen something that Vancouverites often don’t see in the winter: SUN together with SNOW!

The snow had turned our familiar green landscape into black and white, making the familiar unfamiliar.

Unfortunately life got in the way and I never got around to posting the photos. But this week’s photo challenge at the Daily Post is to ‘share a photo that takes a familiar scene and makes it look and feel like something out of this world.’

To further heighten the unreality I have turned them into black and white, stripping any vestige of colour out of them.

This one I didn’t turn into black and white as the camera seemed to be having some fun itself, interpreting the lighting very oddly!
