I walked through the snow on my way to work. The soft snow flakes lent a calmness to my senses, almost inducing a dreamy stupor. A bright red umbrella blazed through the languorous landscape, erupting as an attractive woman, whose charms you could hardly escape.
I got to work and tried to settle down. But the red umbrella had already set my heart on fire. Like a man possessed, for the rest of the day, between smoke breaks at work, I chased men and women with colorful umbrellas. I trailed them, followed them, and stalked them. In the process, I realized how fast men and women walk when it snows, without realizing the beauty of a snowy day.
What follows is an amateur effort at capturing the colors that punctuate the white snow.
