Antique Impressions: Snow at the Door

Snow at the Front Door  PT-Mat

The snow drifted in right by the front door. Had to clean it out , so that my son could get in. The yellow-brown tones in the two shots resemble the Van Dyke browns of earlier photo-processing methods. I thought this style went well with the textured mat that I had created previously. The textured mat was generated by combining some paper & page scans – lots of modification to get this one.

  1. Somehow the warm tones still seem cold with all that snow.

      True. It is a late night shot and the feel of the lamp light and shadowed edges counter the warmth. It is so much warmer in the snow & ice during the day-light hours. 😀

    I still can’t get my head around the amount of snow you LIVE in on a daily basis in northern America and Canada. The snow I’m seeing on yours and a couple of other blogs I follow is unbelievable ! I do love that mount too and can understand the amount of work that went into it. Do you get outside at all in this type of weather?

      Oh yes we trudge about . It is really not something you want to do when there are severe wind-chills. We have block heaters and batter blankets for the cars. Southern Ontario and much of America are not used to such things, especially when they last for such a duration. We were getting soft in our area as well. Have not had to plug in the car’s block heater in a few winters and got caught napping. 😀
