Day 32 Summary – Feb 1, 2015

Photography in snow isn’t my forte. I hardly ever seem to get the contrast I want. We had a few inches of snow last night in the area. I didn’t want to shoot a subject that was very urban, as a small amount of wet snow just exaggerates how dirty the city can be.

I couldn’t risk going north for deeper snow as they are forecasting blizzard conditions and flash freezing roads.

I chose to drive up near Liberty, MO to the Shoal Creek living history museum. This is a small area of Hodge park where they have relocated a number of frontier buildings for preservation and display. With snow still coming down and the bitter wind, I had the place to myself for more than an hour. After a bit of poking around, I decided on the Mt. Ararat baptist church and an old buckboard for subjects.
