Fresh snow & a typewriter

Here are a few pictures taken over the past week.  The first set was snapped in the early hours of January 31st after five inches of snow had fallen over Owensboro.  I took these pictures using my 20mm and 50 mm lenses.  I discovered real fast how difficult it is to take pictures when you're bundled up with temperatures in the low 20s.  It's hard to keep your lenses clean and the feeling in your fingers.  A trick to taking landscape photographs of snow.  Black and white pops more.  Colors aren't usually as brilliant in winter so you can really make your pictures pop by transforming them into B&W.

This next group of pictures was taken of my awesome new typewriter!  This fine machine is a birthday present from my wonderful girlfriend who completely surprised me with it!  It's a Royal Quiet Deluxe Portable typewriter, circa 1940.  I had to snap some low light pictures of it.  It's easy to grab a good picture when you have subject matter like this.  I left most of these in color because I think the colors add to the vintage look.
