Rochester Friday in January

I took this picture yesterday, and found it sort of represents the whole season and school quarter here at RIT during the winter. The contrast between the dark on the bottom and the brighter top half symbolize the coldness, dreariness and sort of “slowness” of the length of the winter season and academic quarter, but sooner or later it will be over, and the temperatures will warm up and it’ll be spring. I also liked it for the lack of people, and the pureness of the natural surroundings that we’re blessed with here. Meanwhile, the snow is a nice symbol of the weather that will hang around for months to come. This snow fell over a week ago, and it is only now starting to finally disappear.
