Do You Want To Build A Snowman

The snow is almost gone and I’m not sad to see it go. But I can’t deny the fun it creates for my kids. They love to sled, make snow angels, and have snowball fights. Most of all, though, they love to build a snowman.

These images were all shot on Kodak Tri-X 400 black and white film on a Canon AE-1Program camera, developed at The Darkroom.


I’m participating in a monthly blog circle with other film shooters from the photography forum Light Inspired. Please head over to Stacy’s blog to see what she’s been shooting this month!

    I am glad to here your snow is about gone. To close here, tho the warmer weather is helping it lessen. I love tri-x outside in the winter. I just gives the perfect contrast in the snow.

    Love the black and white film Gretchen! It looks like she had a good time. I am finding as an adult it is much harder to build a snowman because most of the hard work was done by my Mom 🙂

    Gretchen, I just love these! The black and white images are beautiful. We love winter fun here too, and I’m so glad that you’ve been able to get out have some winter fun despite this awful winter. You daughter is adorable and you images capture her (and her snowman’s)fun just perfectly!
