Even more snow!


Even though it's warmer than it's been for some time (a balmy 0°C at the moment!) we've had fresh snow again today. Not a lot, but enough to make everything look pretty again.

I spent a good hour walking around my neighbourhood this morning, looking at the white stuff and taking a few photos. I like this one because it shows an interesting building as well as an old-style London black cub, complete with a thick layer of snow on the roof and hood.

Nice building and lively image. The cab is losing its already scarce aerodynamics with all that snow.
What did you do at One Poultry?

Having reached the balmy zero, right?

I agree about the composition - a combination of items, each significant but more interesting when put together like this.

@ VP: Haha good point re: the aerodynamics!
I used to work for one of the companies based there. The building is just office space.

@ Per: Who would have thought that 0°C would feel warm? I've heard so many people comment on how much warmer it feels lately, it's really quite funny :-)

Awesome house!

I like that building, Tinsie! Could it possibly a single-family residence, or perhaps an apartment building?

And one need a fresh coat of snow every once in awhile to cover the slush!

Nicely done! (I love that old cab, too!)

Beautiful shot. This building has really interesting design.

@ Jacob: It was most certainly a single-family residence once, but it will have been converted into one- or two-bedroom flats sometime in the latter half of the 20th century.

Just goes to show, the general theory on relativity holds in the weather business as well. A bitingly cold day feels warm when compared to something even frostier.

Indeed! It's very unusual (bordering on unbelievable) for a Londoner to be claiming 0°C feels warm.
