It was so quiet. The blanket of snow seemed to muffle the noises of the city. As we walked deeper into the park it was as if we had left the city behind us. All I could hear was the crunch of snow under our feet. It was special snow ...the kind that you could see the crystalline structures of the snowflakes when they landed on our mittens.
We weren't really alone. Many others had ventured out into the park. A man with his coffee and son in tow. A couple strolling under the canopy of red berried trees. And people walking dogs. I had my camera and took quick snapshots. The pictures take me back to the park. But it was walking on the cold day and experiencing it with all of my senses that help me capture the moment with my pastels.
