its snowing here today, great big beautiful giant flakes. i have been busy watching them for a while, after yet another fuck of a week. i read a few posts from last summer on here, during the Time of Troubles as i now call it, and there was a lovely comment that said i bet in a year you will be thriving. well, i aint there yet, far from it.
but i can enjoy the snow, and i can say that while i do not at all understand HOW snowflake bentley actually took the beautiful pictures he took, i have on two occasions been able to see a snowflake up close, enough to see the design of its little holes and points. its quite a little miracle.
so here is a video to get you started. i bought his book on ebay after learning about him. its a very worthy purchase. it will explain his process to you, but i still couldnt understand it, after reading. maybe if you understand it, you can explain it to me.
