The Hour Glass

Blizzard of 2016 – New York

New York, NY |

Passion keeps the flow flowing, by AshtonNekolah, the first Blizzard of 2016, as I happen to move around to much areas as I can, over 5 miles of walking today 6hrs on the road, it wasn’t that bad until the last hrs before I headed in from the cold.

Visibility was pretty much the worse as my goggles was getting fogged from to much heat coming from the body. I was out pretty much before most people in this city even wake to make another day, the air pretty much had a voice of it’s own, the wind chill was to the bone. I’m not very good in the cold as my small hands takes most of the beating. The wind and ice can freeze you in minutes, there were many points I couldn’t see a thing as the snow and the wind combines together in a very harsh rain like fall and the wind is strong enough to push you down if your walking down on a slope or even knock your camera phone out of your hands.

If you put things over edges from high places you could be asking for problems, also, walking along the bridges especially the Manhattan, the accumulated snow that builds and builds as the snow plow trucks move across the bridge big chunks would fall onto the pedestrian walk way that will hit you in the head, with shower down on you as well.

As the light became brighter through the morning people became visible, and cars also were a bit more on the streets, I didn’t see kids until much latter into the day with there parents and pets but most of the morning there were nothing.
I’m very use to not seeing much people anymore due to my change of time when I shoot, it really makes New York not look like this busy city that most are use to.

The images are some of what I ran into, most were shot the way they are at random, allot of things I missed as well but there are more to come anyway. As it hit around 2:30pm EST there was a Travel Ban in the city, this is what they say that will keep people of the streets especially drivers.
