I’ve been creating a list of things to do on the first snow day of the 2012 season. It came so late that I threw my list out the window and decided to go out exploring instead. It seems that New York City turns snow into slush instantaneously. Amidst the buses spraying icy slurry onto pedestrians and slick sidewalks I snapped a couple of shots of landmark landscapes with their first blanket of snow this year. The Pond at Central Park is frozen over. A glimpse of Katharina Fritsch’s mixed metal sculpture, Figurengruppe, displayed in the MOMA courtyard provided color against a rather bleak winter landscape.
