A White X-mas for Someone Used to Beach X-mas!

2011-02-06

One might think about White Christmas as the only kind of Christmas there is. But for us Brazillians, that’s only something you see in the movies!

Knowing that the summer was only starting, my boyfriend and I decided to spend our holiday break in NYC!
It would be a great chance to take a break from the heat and have a very different Christmas, a white one!
(For those who don’t know, we don’t have snow in Brazil, EVER! So, if you see an adult tourist acting like a child at the smallest sight of any white thing falling from the sky, it’s probably a Brazilian!)

So, we packed our analogues (Fisheye, Actionsampler, Pentax) and added a brand new Diana f+, bought in our first stop in NYC!

Many might think that getting snowed in, having to walk through all that ice etc. would be a negative point in the trip. But for us tropical kids, it was a blast! We had the best time walking through Central Park between all that white.

Actually, the snow only came a day after Christmas, but at least we got to enjoy some of it!
We had to come back to our killing extra-hot weather (January, February are though months) but at least we got these pics to cool down with!
