First Snow (A Little Late)
We got our first snow in Chicago while I was away visiting Washington DC. I’m a little late on this, but here’s an old Flash project that draws on specific keywords relating to snow.
First Snow pulls in photos that contain words or phrases like “snow,” “snowflake,” or “first snow.” They’re sorted by time, with preference to photos that are the most recent. I like watching this each year, as the photos change as the winter progresses – more people take more photos, which then alters the piece.
Believe it or not, when I fired up the poem looking for a screenshot, I ran into a picture I recognized on the second runthrough. It was a photo of the wedding topper from Ben and Allison’s wedding (which travelled with them to Iceland). Small world.
