There’s nothing like wind-driven snow to create intriguing photo opportunities in New York. Last weekend’s storm, which coincided with a brief family visit to the City, did not disappoint. (It also gave me a great chance to test the mettle of my weather-resistant Fuji XT2 body and lenses.) I spent most of the morning on the first day walking around Chelsea, my new favorite section of the City (what an amazing assortment of restaurants, delis, cafes, and bars as well as stores catering to the basic necessities of life). An afternoon trip uptown to the Museum of Modern Art provided welcome relief from the cold and the chance to view a brilliant exhibit on the history of fashion.
Here’s a sampling of photos from the brief excursion, starting with the train ride from Boston and ending with the return trip the next day.

The trip was great and, I’m happy to report, the Fuji weather sealing passed with flying colors.
