Exposure | First Frozen Memories

Diamond Naga Siu, Editor-in-Chief

Tapping my phone vigorously on Wednesday evening, I thought the impossible happened — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio rocked my world with his announcement of a public school snow day. I was elated. But after leapfrogging through the graying to blackened slush and ice, remembering why I originally felt such euphoria from a 140-character message became increasingly difficult. So reminiscing back to the transient winter wonderland, I was thankful that on my first snow day, my numb fingers found the camera shutter and tried capturing the quiet moments in this loud city: frozen dog walks, solitary playground visitors and most striking of all, the city structures powdered with nature. I hope these memories stick longer than my first snowball did.
