Xmas Trees

1921 06 Xmas trees snow copy

It’s Soho. And obviously, it’s near to Christmas. We were down shopping in a furniture store as I recall. The wet snow was covering the trees. I like this impressionist take on what would have been a wet dreary day. I don’t know the settings – film. But it works for me and it evokes a memory each time I look at this image. I am reminded of Maggie Sherwood, whose image totally blurred in the rain from a cab inspires me to this day.

  1. I think it’s absolutely wonderful. What is the image blurred by rain from a cab? I have seen some of Maggie Sherwood’s 1960’s photographs. They are classic sixties in my head. Something about the one where the people are all sitting at square tables as in a restaurant, I think, reminds me of “The Nighthawk”. The colors and energy in this street photo are exciting, Victor! I love it. 🙂
