Another year and another major snowstorm. Growing up in New England I’ve seen my share of snow and when a winter storm hits I can’t help but think about my 2009 experience in Washington D.C. Being a photographer and living in an area that does not experience large amounts of snow, I set out to capture the city during this unique time. The snow was still falling when I set out to explore Georgetown and Downtown.
By the end of the day, 15 inches of snow had accumulated. If I had only known that D.C. would discontinue Metro service to VA by the time I was ready to head home. The only way home was on foot… yes, I walked from D.C. to Arlington, VA in blizzard conditions. Crossing the 14th Street bridge was the toughest part with the high winds. The camera I had tucked away in my jacket stopped working half way across the bridge. It was a day to remember, that’s for sure.
Here is a look back at my favorite images and some added behind the scene shots.
