Snow on New Hampshire Street in Sepia

These photos could be from another time except for the modern cars.  One could imagine carriages and horses trotting down the avenues, top hats being tipped and long wool scarves wrapped tightly keeping out the seeping cold air.  I love the way these photos came out.  I awoke at four in the morning and went to the window to peak out and there was an Earth covered in a white blanket of snow.  I did not alter the color, the sepia tone is just what happened with night lighting.  I love the glow of the lights, the old time quality,like a moment stolen in time travel.  Washington reveals itself in layers of history and gives us glimpses into its rich and historic past.  If you look hard, you see the ghost of the past peaking through to the present.
